Club Connect

Athletics New Zealand Club Conference and Annual General Meeting

Each year Athletics New Zealand holds a conference specifically for clubs. The conference is titled Club Connect, referring to the need for connections to be made between Athletics NZ and 170 Member Clubs and between clubs themselves.

The 2020 Club Connect Conference was held on Sunday 8 November from 10am to 3pm at Bruce Pulman Park, Auckland and followed the Athletics New Zealand Annual General Meeting.

The conference included a facilitated brainstorming workshop on the Future of Athletics, with club and Centre delegates sharing their stories of innovation in their communities, as well as opportunities to meet and speak with Athletics NZ staff and Board members on important issues in the sport.
