Connect, Experience, Enjoy - Clubs New Zealand and the club industry in New Zealand
29 March 2018
Connect, Experience, Enjoy - Clubs New Zealand and the Club Industry in New Zealand is a quick, easy to read book which takes readers through the history of our fantastic little industry while also providing insight into the important role that clubs play within the lives of members and their communities.
The idea of the book was conceived as a way to help answer the question "oh, Clubs New Zealand, what do you do?" As mentioned earlier this year we have already begun distributing copies of the book to ministers, local government officials and other groups to raise awareness of the club movement and illustrate that there is much more to clubs then meets the eye.

Executive and Committee Liabilities
22 February 2018
Being elected to a clubs committee is to be considered something of an honour, it is an important and responsible position to hold. As a committee member your role does mean that you are liable for the legal operation of the club, basically, this means you must make sure you know of and respond appropriately to any issues affecting the successful and legal operation of the club.
Under the Incorporated Societies Act 1908, members of an incorporated society such as a club are not liable for any debt, contract or other obligation made or incurred by the club within the terms of its constitution. Such liability is limited to the assets of the club. However, individual committee members may be liable if they should be involved in a contract which was not authorised under the terms of the club’s constitution, or it is shown that they wilfully disregarded consistent professional advice which later leads to damages being awarded to the club.
