The Engineering Heritage Chapters tell local heritage stories, run events and connect and collaborate with other local heritage organisations.

There are currently four Engineering Heritage Chapters around the country – Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin. The groups are open to all with an interest in engineering heritage. New members are welcome to join at any time. The group meets regularly.
