In an effort to provide more value to Yachting New Zealand affiliated clubs and their members, we are introducing a Member Card and smartphone app.
The card and app will be free for all affiliated clubs, and both contain benefits for the club and your members. They allow individuals to demonstrate the club’s affiliation to the national body as well as access to Member Benefits from Yachting New Zealand’s partners.
Over the past few months, we have been trialling this concept as a ‘discount card’ with six clubs – and with those learnings and feedback on board, we are now ready to make this available to all clubs and their members.
The Member Card and app will be available from 30 September onwards, and will be valid until each clubs’ membership expiry date. We will be personalizing each Member Card with a member's name, the name and logo of their club, and their own club membership number (if this is recorded at your club). Some clubs may choose to use this instead of their own current membership card.
Member Benefits include exclusive offers from our partners including Aon New Zealand, Volvo Cars NZ, Air New Zealand, Millennium Hotels, VTNZ, Lancer Industries and many more.
There will be additional Member Benefits added regularly, and the app will be a useful tool to keep cardholders informed of developments. In fact, anybody will be able to download the app on iPhone or Android – but only members of clubs who have subscribed to this initiative will be able to access the member benefits.

Every club has been sent information in the post and by email formally regarding this – but if you have any questions or are ready to get your club signed up, contact our new Member Card Coordinator, Julie today!
