So what elective sessions are on offer?
WHY CASH REMAINS KING
We hear it so often, “cash is no longer king” and “you have to be prepared for the cashless society”, but is society ready to go cashless? Cash plays a huge role in clubs, and while other means of payment have made their way onto the scene, cash is not showing any signs of disappearing in the near future.
ACM is the New Zealand division of Linfox Armaguard Pty Ltd, the largest currency management company in Australasia with more than 80 years of expert currency management experience. Brent Irvine ACM are here to discuss why cash still plays such an important role and how clubs can maintain their use of cash in the face of growing pressure to give it up.
SALE AND SUPPLY - GOING INTO BAT
2019 was the year that Reciprocal Rights made its way into the spotlight when a number of clubs were challenged during their licence renewal process over the way reciprocal rights was administered and managed. The challenge to reciprocal rights resulted in confusion, a fair amount of panic and more emails bouncing around clubs than ever before. Alastair will be joining us in Hastings to discuss the hearing which contextualised and confirmed Clubs New Zealand’s Reciprocal Rights arrangements. Alastair will also delve into DLAs, LAPs and the need for clubs to be up to speed on what is happening in their area.
Alastair specialises in advising public and private sector clients on employment, health and safety at work, education, alcohol licensing and class 4 gaming. Alastair also provides conflicts of interest and constitutional advice for societies.
Alastair is co-author of the textbook Sale of Alcohol and peer reviews the 6-monthly publication New Zealand Gambling Law Guide.
DEALING WITH DIFFICULT EMPLOYEES
Whatever you do follow the process! That’s easy in theory, but how do you follow process when you are trying to move an underperformer on? Michael Quigg will be joining us to explore this very conundrum with a focus on complying with process and avoiding those PGs. He will share some of his experiences and provide some practical tips.
Michael Quigg has worked in New Zealand Employment law for more than 30 years. His clients include large government organisations and multi-national corporations; they also include the little guys who are doing their best to stay legally compliant.
Clubs need to be aware of how to avoid legal pitfalls in order to keep out of court.
As mentioned in our previous conference update it is important to familiarise yourself with the draft programme to ensure that your travel aligns with the conference activities
More information on the conference including how to register will be released next week. If you have any questions please contact National Office on 0800 4 CLUBS.
