On Thursday 27 July the Committee of the New Zealand Internet Exchange Inc (NZIX) held its 2023 Annual General Meeting.

This was our third year of holding a hybrid AGM and we welcomed our members and industry guests, both in person at the Longroom in Auckland, and online via Zoom.  We thank all guests who attended, but particularly those who braved the wind and rain to join us in person!

Society Chair, Dave Mil of Searchlight, commenced the formalities of the AGM by welcoming everyone and giving his Chair’s Report. He provided an update on the Auckland IX Expansion project, MDR floor move, launching of our new Datacom PoP and our new IX in Wellington.

Treasurer Chris Browning was pleased to announce that at the end of the 2022/23 financial year NZIX had $417k cash on hand, $219k profit before depreciation, $93k net profit and $552k equity. Also notable is that we carry no loans or other debt.

Jocelyn Bateman stood in for Tom Paseka (who was unable to join us in-person from California this year) and ran through NZIX membership growth, policies changes and confirmed there will be 3 Committee seats up for nomination next year. The new Societies Act 2022 will prompt some changes to our Society Rules and we expect those changes to be ready to vote on at next year’s AGM.

Aaron Chidiac from IAA delivered the technical report breaking down each IX and reporting on peers, traffic, routes and ports. Auckland IX had big changes over the year, with the Auckland Expansion project completing. Whilst the other two exchanges remained relatively unchanged, but ticking along nicely.

With no elections or voting this year the meeting concluded with a member discussion and everyone at the Longroom enjoyed a few drinks and nibbles as well.

We sent out a post-event survey that returned some overwhelmingly positive feedback and a couple of notes of improvements. Thank you to those who completed the survey; your feedback is valuable and always welcome. For those who were unable to attend, if you would like to see the AGM slides, they are available by request.

The NZIX Committee were able to reconvene last month on the Gold Coast to hold their second annual Strategy Day.

We’ve become quite an international team over recent years, and more so with Jocelyn joining the Committee at our last election. AusNOG was a great opportunity to have everyone in the same room for a whole day.  We talked strategy, governance and technical matter and it was a really productive day.

The Committee discussed and approved implementing a more formal process for Asset Management. They finalised the society’s risk register and worked through some succession planning. IAA’s CEO Narelle Clark and Peering Engineer, Aaron Chidiac were in attendance to talk through a 3–5-year technical refresh plan and the Committee approved the move to an upgraded member portal.

Chris and Dave gave a Pacific IXP update, and all Committee members reconfirmed a desire to help wherever possible. Watch this space!

We closed the day with a discussion on how else NZIX could make improvements to the Internet in New Zealand. Given that the society is unlikely to grow much larger, the question turned to how else can we help: Governance? Education? Sponsoring? If you have any ideas, we would love to hear them, please drop us an email at

The Strategy Day was a huge success and reflected the NZIX Committee’s ongoing commitment to running a profitable, reliable and sustainable society for all its members.

Save the dates: 11 & 12 April 2024 we are pleased to offer our ongoing support of NZNOG by once again becoming a GOLD Sponsor. In anticipation of next year’s event being hosted in the stunning South Island town of Nelson, we’ve compiled an inspirational Top10 things to do!

The 2023 Annual General Meeting will be upon us very soon and we would like to invite all members to save the date. We will once again run it as a hybrid event in the evening, with hopes that members near and far can attend.

Date: Thursday, 27 July 2023
Time: 5.30pm, with formalities starting at 6.00pm NZST
Location: The Longroom, 114 Ponsonby Rd, Grey Lynn, Auckland (or via Zoom)

For the lucky members who will join us in person, canapes and drinks will be supplied, so be sure to turn up and have a good old fashioned face-to-face catch up with other members and the Committee.

With the closing of another financial year, we are reminded that our Annual General Meeting is drawing closer. We are yet to announce the date officially; however, we are looking at hosting a hybrid event again this year at a venue in Auckland and are planning for it to take place around mid to late July.

We can confirm there will be an election this year, with two Committee positions becoming available. One of our outgoing Committee members has confirmed they will not be seeking nomination again, so we are putting the word out early for new nominees. If you would like to give back to the Society and become part of the Committee, please keep an eye out for our communications, as they will let you know when and how to nominate yourself for a Committee position.

NZNOG is happening in just under seven weeks! It should run from Wednesday 18th May – Friday 20th May at the Intercontinental Hotel in Wellington. The NOG can theoretically take place now at the red level, although orange would be preferable. Nevertheless, we are looking forward to (hopefully) seeing as many of you as possible and handing out some NZIX swag!

The Committee of the New Zealand Internet Exchange Inc (NZIX) would like to invite all members to save the date for the 2021 Annual General Meeting to their diaries.

Date: Thursday 17 June 2021
