NZSUP Annual General Meeting 2021 – you are invited!
The New Zealand Stand Up Paddling Inc (NZSUP) Annual General Meeting will be held on Sunday 20th June at 5pm, Takapuna Boating Club (39 The Strand, Takapuna).

NZSUP is a not-for-profit Incorporated Society run by a volunteer committee: the President, Secretary and Treasurer and several others, who are passionate about stand up paddling, both recreational and competitive.

The purposes of the Society are to:
promote, organise, administer and represent stand up paddling;
facilitate and promote responsible and safe stand up paddling in accordance with industry best practice;
manage, sanction, support, coordinate and conduct national and international stand up paddling events;
develop and oversee training and instruction guidelines, courses and athlete performance programmes, in liaison with other organisations where appropriate;
advance and facilitate representation of New Zealand stand up paddlers at international events;
cooperate and affiliate with other national and international bodies with similar objects;
do anything necessary or helpful to the above purposes.

The agenda for the meeting will follow shortly.

An important aspect of the AGM is the election of  officers and committee for the following year.  NZSUP needs people with a range of skills to get on board, and we encourage members from all around New Zealand to get involved.

Nominations:
We have many exciting projects in the pipeline including the potential of hosting the 2023 ICF SUP World Championships. So we are actively seeking out committee members who can contribute to the successful delivery of that event. The committee is also keen to invite paddlers with design, events, marketing and secretarial skillsets to the committee for 2021-22.

If you’d like to nominate yourself or someone else to the NZSUP committee, please email it to the NZSUP secretary,  newzealandsup@gmail.com  before 5 pm on 16th May. You can nominate yourself. Please write a short summary of the background and skills of your nominee and a photo if possible.

The Committee comprises Chair/President, Secretary, Treasurer and a minimum of 3 others (maximum 8 Committee Members).
