Over 100 New Zealand Related LinkedIn Groups you could Join

Please help: This listing is new. Many of the groups may be misclassified. Some of them may dead, or for some other reason should be removed. Some of the groups should be renamed. There may be groups missing that should be included. Please write to me here.

General Rules for Inclusion: The group has 100 members or more. The group's owner is in New Zealand. The group's owner is a member of Open Future New Zealand. The group's owner attended University in New Zealand. (Any two or more will do it.)

Sometimes a group may have been excluded because (a) The group owner is not a member of many other groups. (b) The group owner has fewer than 100 LinkedIn connections. If because you choose to be so badly connected, the only way to contact you was by sending you an Inmail, your group may not be here.

[Rant on] On the other hand I did send out about 25 Inmails ($10.00 each) to people who work for Government Departments, and to University students. It's sad that places that are supposed to be centres of excellence, neglect to train staff and students about basic online networking. [Rant Off]

If you feel you've just been told off, there is a help page for you here in the LinkedIn section of the Open Future site.
