NZDF CSC Alumni

Message from the Commandant NZDF Command and Staff College, LTCOL Richard Taylor

It is with much pleasure that I write to you as Commandant of the Command and Staff College and to invite you, past graduate or staff member, to become a member of the College Alumni Association. 

An effective and well-connected Alumni will be of great benefit to our College, and all who have been associated with it. During my recent posting to Papua New Guinea, it became very clear to me that my fellow Alumnus from the PNG Defence Force greatly value their association with the College, and remain interested in the College and its activities. I know that other graduates, former staff and teaching associates will feel the same.

The main aims of the CSC Alumni Association will be to:

  • assist graduates of the College in keeping connected;
  • provide relevant professional military articles and information that will be of interest to graduates;
  • provide a useful tool for communicating personal news such as promotion, postings and achievements of graduates; and
  • assist in facilitating course reunions and Alumni conferences.

The Association is still in its infancy and I hope that, with your help, suggestions and support, it will become a vibrant and effective Association to be involved with. Membership is free and does not create any obligation. 

Please take a few minutes to download and complete the membership registration form [doc 65 Kb] and send it back to our Alumni Manager. You can also contact the Alumni Manager directly at We will be in contact with you shortly to outline further plans for the Association.  Could I also encourage you to forward this invitation to any other CSC graduates whom you have remained connected with.  This will be a huge help in ensuring that we make contact with as many graduates as possible.
