MECOSS Community Networking Meetings are an opportunity for local community groups, social and health and safety providers, not-for-profit organisations and interested general public to make solid connections, learn from each other and to share and discuss ideas.

Attendees are invited to speak and inform the audience about the great things they're doing in the community. It's also a place where individuals and groups can voice their opinion and/or raise concerns about what they feel need addressing. In some circumstances, MECOSS may then act as an advocate for change through Community Networks Aotearoa (CNA); a national organisation with strong links to government.

During 2020, MECOSS meetings will be held at venues in the Pakuranga and Howick area and the Botany and Flat Bush and Ormiston area of Auckland's, Manukau East.
