Our Association’s Annual General Meeting will be held at 2pm on Sunday, 12th May 2019
Venue: our Clubroom at 38 Glen Mall Place, Glen Eden, Auckland 0602.
The AZSCA is an association established in 1984 for the benefit of Auckland (and NZ) citizens who have ancestral links with Zhongshan, China. The AZSCA is a non-profit association comprising membership from over 400 families encompassing more than 1000 individuals.
The Association is managed by a committee of elected members who volunteerily give their time and resources to provide members with a range of social functions and support covering Zhongshan related opportunities. The Committe is elected for a two year term and at this year's AGM a new committee of up to 25 members and office holders will be elected.
We would like to see as many members as possible attending this Meeting to assist us in planning our forthcoming events and also to help with suggestions for ways we can possibly improve our Association and extra entertainment for our members.
The agenda will be published soon and will comprise:-
- Officer's Reports
- Presentation of Accounts
- Election of Committee and Officers
- Special business items raised.
All members are welcome at this meeting:-
2pm on Sunday, 12th May 2019
Venue: our Clubroom at 38 Glen Mall Place, Glen Eden
The AZSCA Committee has reviewed the membership fees and resolved the following changes to the structure and rates, effective 1st February 2019:-
$200 Member and Spouse/Partner
$200 Family - Member/Partner and their Children, up to 18 years old
$100 Junior / single adult member
Children of members (aged 18 years and less) can still enjoy Association activities without extra charge.
This review is the first since the Association was incorporated in 1984, 35 years ago.
The AZSCA Association provides numerous benefits to members over the course of the year and the new rate is still considered to be excellent value for the benefits on offer. Most activities such as the outings, dinners and meetings are subsidised for members. The Association also drives initiatives to promote Auckland-Zhongshan relationships, our members and their culture, in NZ and globally. Examples are the Youth Scholarships, Friendship hosting activities and Honouring of Seniors.
At this stage the joining fee is the only cost to members, the annual membership fee is still $0
