Please read below before you join this Meetup group:

1) Membership requests are subject to approval by the Event Committee.

2) We kindly ask you to confirm you have added the correct details on your Meetup profile to help us manage the growing number of members across many events we host each year. If you haven't already, please provide your FULL REAL NAME (preferred name + SURNAME) in your general Meetup profile. Ideally it should be the same as in your LinkedIn profile. The requirement of a full name is in place for identifying attendees for security and attendance purposes as we hold our events in corporate buildings around Auckland. We also use attendance lists from Meetup to confirm PDU/CDU indications our members make for certification purposes. If you have privacy concerns and don't want members of your other groups to see your full name, the alternative option is to open a separate Meetup account and use it for professional networking groups like ours.
