About Us

The Federation of New Zealand Netherlands Societies Inc. was founded in 1966. It is governed by the National Council, a body of the Affiliated Societies, who meet once a year at the Annual National Council Meeting, which is usually held in October and each year in a different centre in New Zealand.

The day to day well being is in the hands of an elected committee meeting once a month by way of conference call. At present the committee consists of the following members:
