Our groups

Life is busy, and we all know it. Once you factor in work, time spent with family, and then your own personal "me" time, there's not a lot left over.

If you're passionate about being part of your community, it's worth putting a little time aside to join some of our LIANZA Groups.

It's a great way to get involved in your local professional community.

As a member of LIANZA, your membership automatically entitles you to a membership in your regional group and any special interest groups that grab your attention.

The best bit? It's cheap as! For the low cost of $11.50 per annum, you can make a difference in your part of the world, while getting your name out there.

All for the the price of a mean nasi goreng. 

Have I piqued your interest? Nice! Now get in touch and JOIN!
