The New Zealand American Association in Atlanta is one of the many good things to come out of the 1996 Olympics hosted in this city. The group was formed to act as host for the New Zealand Olympians, and guess what? We found a lot of New Zealanders here! No surprise really...Kiwis can't fly, but they sure can travel. More than that, we found a lot of non-New Zealanders with a great love for and interest in Aotearoa. The result was a group determined to continue the joint Olympic and Kiwi ethic. So here we are -- come join us!

Welcome all new NZAA members!

We are excited that you have become a Full Member of the New Zealand American Association. Remember, there's no membership fee. All we ask is that your sign your membership card and register your details so we can keep you posted about news and events that we know you will love to attend.

Our new program is focused on more events, more different kinds of events throughout the year, all of them fun, friendly, informal, and affordable. To support our association, we may charge an admission or ask for a donation, just so we can do all the things NZAA needs to do.

Apart from that, all we need is you, your family and your friends to join us in making our Kiwi group in Atlanta the best place to be for every New Zealander, and every friend of New Zealand.
