|CSNZ is a special interest group, focussing on Cymbidiums and also Paphiopedilums and Phragmipediums. The group was established in the 1980s as CSA-NZ as a branch of the Cymbidium Society of America which had its headquarters in California. Following the winding up of the US parent, the NZ entity is continuing as CSNZ.
CSNZ is based in Auckland, but has members spread widely around the country. The group meets for an annual show in Auckland and for judging seminars from time to time (open to all), and also has the opportunity to meet in New Plymouth during the Taranaki Orchid Society’s summer show in January each year.
CSNZ, which has a panel of accredited judges in NZ, continues to judge orchids according to the CSA judging rules established by the US body.
Annual membership of CSNZ just $15.00.
