Retired Member Activist Group
The NSWNMA Retired Member Activist Group (RMAG) was formed in early 2016 to assist in campaigning on these issues:

RMAG members can:
- Visit, ring or write to their local MPs
- Call talkback radio

For Professional (retired) members who elect to join the RMAG, the NSWNMA membership fee is waived.
