New Zealand Computer Society

Monday, September 29, 2008

New Zealand Computer Society is a professional organization for the Information and Communication Technology industry. If you are into ICT and New Zealand Immigration is on your plans, it is to your advantage if you will apply for membership to New Zealand Computer Society once you landed in New Zealand.

Here are some of the benefits of membership (professional) to New Zealand Computer Society

Professional Recognition
Being a member of NZCS means something. It separates a true ICT professional from someone who calls themselves an IT Consultant or practitioner but doesn't prescribe to a code of ethics or commit to continual professional development.

Professional Development
hose who join the Society commit to a programme of continued professional development, and the Society continues to make available growth and educational opportunities to help our members continue to keep up with the play, and continue to develop themselves as professionals - no matter how experienced they are.

Networking Opportunities
I gives you opportunity to build career-long contacts and relationships with like-minded professionals.
