We can now confirm the Back to Basic's Manager's Course dates for the remainder of 2017.  The two-day course is aimed at “upskilling” Managers who would like to improve their knowledge around “compliance” issues and obtain a detailed understanding of the various components clubs traditionally earn revenue from. Some of the topics are:

  • Who is Clubs New Zealand and what we can assist with via our website or in person,
  • Basic accounting requirements for your club – Audits, Gaming accounts, “KISS”,
  • Legislation that effects your club - The Sale & Supply of Alcohol Act 2012, Incorporated Societies Act, Food Bill etc.,
  • Gaming – best practices,
  • Business Partners – making them work for your Club.
