The New Zealand Stand Up Paddling Inc (NZSUP) Annual General Meeting will be held on Sunday 6 September 2020  at Takapuna Boating Club offices (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 Minutes of last year’s meetings can be downloaded from the link below. The agenda will follow shortly.
