The IPENZ Transportation Group is the pre-eminent professional body for traffic engineers and transportation planners in New Zealand. Membership benefits include receipt of quarterly editions of "Roundabout", the group's flagship publication, keeping members up to date on developments in the profession. Members also can attend the annual IPENZ Transportation Conference and local branch meetings and activities in our five branches . Members of the group have the opportunity to be involved in preparing submissions on all major transportation issues, legislation and policies. A number of our members are not engineers and only about half are members of IPENZ, so membership of IPENZ is not a prerequisite. Come and join over 1,000 other traffic and transportation practitioners from around the country, and ensure your own continuing professional development and the development of the profession.
