|Branch membership lists|
There is a New Zealand Post Primary Teachers' Association / Te Wehengarua (PPTA) branch in each school or workplace making the branch the most immediate and significant level of involvement for most members.
- 18,000 members in 560 branches (schools).
- Each branch is autonomous.
- Branches are led by elected officials, normally branch committee.
- A branch receives funds from their region.
The effective performance of branch officers is crucial to ensure that the Association receives accurate and clear messages about what is happening in schools and what members want, and for members to receive the information and assistance in their working lives to which they are entitled.
Many branches are now led by an elected collective of branch officials, among whom tasks are shared out as they arise.
