Both groups hold free sessions throughout the year, for PRINCE2 foundation or practitioner qualified people or anyone with a genuine interest in improving and exploiting best practice in project management, programme management, change management or portfolio management. While they are mainly interested in PRINCE2, the speakers often cover other related topics. They also take an interest in digitisation, Agile development, Business intelligence and Artificial intelligence. If you can do a project with it, then they're interested in it.

Costs of venues, food and liquid refreshments at the meetings are through the generosity of sponsors.  https://www.meetup.com/The-Auckland-PRINCE2-User-Group/
