Our new website is in need of some new photos!

That's right, this year Clubs New Zealand will be getting a new website. The current Clubs New Zealand website is 10 years old (which is ancient in website years) and very much in need of some love.

We want our new website to really showcase the best of our industry and that is where we need your help. We are in need of high-quality photos that we can feature on the website. If you have any photos that you think show case what clubs are all about please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
