Customer or debtor? Are we treating renewals and membership fees as an opportunity?

29 June 2022

The team at National Office have recently uncovered an audio recording from the Clubs New Zealand Conference and AGM, 1999.  The audio is of a keynote presentation from Steve Parker, expert in marketing and associated matters, and a well established “clubby”.   This wasn’t the first time Steve spoke at a Clubs New Zealand event and it certainly was not the last, but what is striking about this particular, 23-year-old piece of audio is that it is 100% relevant to clubs today.

The Mobile App is valid proof of membership

26 May 2022

In recent weeks we have been receiving a number of enquiries from both clubs and members regarding reciprocal rights.  It is clear that some club employees do not understand the requirements of the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012 as it relates to reciprocal rights and there have been some embarrassing interactions that could have been avoided.

Incorporated Societies Act 2022 - Update

29 April 2022

The new Incorporated Societies Act 2022 was signed into law on 5 April 2022. The 2022 Act replaces the Incorporated Societies Act 1908.
