New Zealand Young Farmers (NZYF) is an important not-for-profit organisation that helps young members of the rural community connect with one another and grow as future leaders. NZYF has over 2,000 members and holds different events across the country in which its members can participate.
Fencing Contractors Association New Zealand (FCANZ) is another dedicated collective, made up of fencing contractors and founding strategic partner WIREMARK. Their goal is to uphold fencing as a registered profession, promote a high level of workmanship and act as a knowledge hub for fencers.
