Club Manual (How to Run a Club)

This manual was developed as a guide to help member clubs with the roles and responsibilities of key positions within a clubs executive, plus management guides to help run a club effectively.

Annual Club Administration Information

The Police/PNZ LOA ("Relationship Police/NZPA" - Section 2.6) and Arms Legislation Act 2020 (Section 38K) requires that each club sends its local Arms Officer an annual update each year. The form above was created to help with this process and indicates what information is required to be sent.
