Royal New Zealand Returned Services' Association

The Royal New Zealand Returned Services' Association (Inc), often referred to as the RSA or the RNZRSA, is a voluntary ex-service organisation[?], dedicated to the welfare of veterans. In addition to welfare services, the RSA participates in community projects; the 'local RSA' is often a well-known meeting place or restaurant in a locality.

Specifically a 'non-sectarian and non-party political' group, RSA membership is open to ex-service personnel, serving or retired members of the armed forces, sworn police officers that are New Zealand or Commonwealth citizens or permanent residents[?]. Associate membership is available to citizens and permanent residents without military nor police connections.

In Australia, the equivalent organisation is the Returned & Services League of Australia.
