The Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners acknowledge and thank the sponsors listed below, without whom the Conference would not be possible.

Notebook and pen sponsor | General Practice NZ

General Practice New Zealand (GPNZ) is the representative body for general practice in Aotearoa New Zealand, through Primary Health Organisations.

Hydration sponsor | MAS

MAS is a membership-based insurance and investment company that’s been supporting New Zealand professionals for the past hundred years.

MAS offers a wide range of general insurance products such as house, contents, and car insurance; life insurance and income protection; and responsibly invested KiwiSaver funds.

Founded by doctors for doctors in 1921, MAS now welcomes New Zealanders from all walks of life. MAS is a mutual, which means we are owned by our Members and we don’t have to generate big profits for overseas shareholders. And because our advisers are paid a salary with no commissions, you can be sure they have your best interests at heart.

As you’d expect from a company set up by doctors, we’re all about serving our community. Our view is that when New Zealand communities thrive, we thrive too.

Our purpose is to inspire a healthier Aotearoa, and it underpins everything we do.
