A major project to rebuild NZMA House is finally underway.
The NZMA has occupied the site at 26 The Terrace since 1926, and has been the owner and occupier of the existing building since its construction 75 years ago. The building, known as NZMA House, was officially opened by Minister of Health Peter Fraser (and future Prime Minister) in 1938 and is a significant part of the Association’s 125 year history dating back to when we were the New Zealand branch of the British Medical Association. The NZMA National Office moved out of NZMA House in 2012, following concerns about earthquake safety issues.
The new building will have improved safety, functionality, and aesthetic features, while retaining the heritage façade.
Buy a Brick
The NZMA is offering members an opportunity to purchase a commemorative brick – in our buy a brick campaign – to financially assist the NZMA with the rebuild.
Three panels in the building’s lobby will display the bricks and prominently showcase members’ support.
Seeking member support is the continuation of a tradition – when the NZMA first purchased the property at 26 The Terrace, members were invited to take up debentures. The NZMA received overwhelming support and within just a few weeks the full amount was subscribed.
To purchase a commemorative brick ($1000), which will include an inscription of your name, please contact Robyn Fell: firstname.lastname@example.org, call 0800 65 61 61 or send us this completed form. The NZMA is a registered charity, so payments will be tax deductible.
