The New Zealand Society of Genealogists (NZSG) is our parent body.
Kapiti Genealogy is formally the Kapiti Branch of the NZSG but operates independently.

Our governing body, the New Zealand Society of Genealogists, underwent a major revision of its rules in 2015 resulting in revised rules registered as at Feb 2017 with subsequent minor amendments to present day (Apr 2020).
As a Branch of the NZSG we do not have rules of our own, so are governed by the NZSG rules.
Details are available to NZSG members from their website, but as the rules impact all of our membership, not only those belonging to NZSG a copy is included here.
Please log in to access the documents.
Included in these rules are those for Branch Extraordinary General Meetings (Section 12.6), and the Disposal of Assets (Section 12.12) should a branch cease to exist.
Kapiti Genealogy is officially the Kapiti Branch of the NZ Society of Genealogists (NZSG).
However, membership of the two organisations is separate, with many advantages in having membership of both.
Under the current constitution of the NZ Society of Genealogists, only those members of the Branch who are also members of the NZSG
Your membership card therefore shows your membership status as either NZSG or Associate.
This distinction makes absolutely no difference to your treatment within the branch, eligibility for services provided, or your ability to volunteer in helping run the branch – only to the two points above.
The NZSG constitution is currently under review, and the relationship with Branches is likely to change.
We do however need to keep our current records up to date.
Likewise, if you no longer belong to the NZSG, please remove your membership number from your profile.
