Genealogy Society Journal or Quarterly (week 39)
New Zealand Periodicals says "A periodical is a regularly published magazine, newsletter, or journal. Many genealogical societies and historical organizations in New Zealand publish magazines, newsletters and genealogical periodicals"
I subscribe to the monthly enewsletter from FamNet, the on-line Family History Network for those with a New Zealand connection! This is where you can interact with the FamNet community: post your views, read old newsletters, and so on. Most of this is freely available, you will not even need to register unless you want to post something, or get access to blogs.
See here for a list of past newsletters

The New Zealand Society of Genealogist (NZSG) is unique because it covers the whole of New Zealand.
In other countries, individual areas have their own organisations.
