GymSports NZ Conference and AGM 2015

Another successful Conference and AGM took place on Sunday 17th May at the Sudima Hotel in Auckland with 57 member clubs represented.  On the suggestion of members, the theme of the conference was Health and Safety – a relevant topic to address in the lead up to the introduction of the new Health and Safety at Work Bill later in the year. 

Two speakers were selected to present on aspects of health and safety that are relevant to all workplace environments from both a legal and practical perspective.  The presentations were followed by an active panel discussion where members heard first-hand experience from gym sports clubs.  Relevant knowledge was shared, advice extended and feedback sought.  For those that did not attend (and those that did), we will shortly be uploading the speaker presentations and the main feedback points from the ‘wrap up’ group session on to the website. So keep checking back though the week.

Thank you to all those that attended.  The Conference and AGM is always an opportunity for members to have their say, meet with the GymSports NZ Board and team and connect with other gym sports community members.
