How Clubs Affiliate

Friendship New Zealand Incorporated (FNZI) is an independent organisation in New Zealand that was established in early 2015. Clubs who wish to affiliate with FNZI are very welcome.

Organisation

FNZI operates under the governance of a Council comprising five elected District Councillors. Their role is to provide guidance, mentorship, and advice to clubs without imposing any constraints on their autonomy. This means that clubs retain full responsibility for their decision-making processes. They can reach out to FNZI District Councillors and the Centre Administrator through the designated 0800 number or email for support. Moreover, the FNZI online database respects the privacy of individual club members by not requiring their names. Member clubs, benefit from regular news updates, emphasizing FNZI's commitment to supporting affiliated clubs while respecting their independence.

Benefits
