MENZSHED New Zealand

MENZSHED New Zealand, to which MenzShed Kapiti is affiliated, is the body that represents and supports Sheds nationwide.

This organisation aims to:

  • Bring Sheds together to enable them to establish relationships and collaborate where appropriate
  • Promote the concept to communities without Sheds, and support groups as they go through the establishment phase (and this includes linking new groups with nearby established Sheds.)
  • Establish relationships with sponsors nationally. This function is also carried out at a local level by the Shed themselves
  • Encourage Sheds to act autonomously
  • Encourage Sheds to make their own decisions and rules – however, we remain available to offer advice on this if asked
  • Operate at minimal cost to Sheds. The only cost incurred by Sheds is the $25.00 annual membership fee
  • Organise national conferences, which are currently on a one-year cycle
  • Allow Sheds to drive the organisation rather than the organisation driving the Sheds
  • Provide a national web site for MenzShed in New Zealand
