Activities in New Zealand

Strata Community Association is committed to providing our members across New Zealand the education they need to continue the growth and improvement of their staff and businesses. 

We have a developed a dedicated online education platform that has webinars and resources on a myriad of topics that will ensure that our members do not miss out on critical CPD training during this period. Many of these webinars have been adapted from face-to-face training we were planning, so we hope this digital option allows for us to reach more members than ever.
