Join the organisation that is committed to New Zealand's whitewater rivers. By becoming a Whitewater NZ Member, you directly contribute to our ability to preserve New Zealand's whitewater resources.
Whitewater NZ has four classes of membership:
Individuals can join for $30 (NZD) for a year's membership, receiving NZ Canoeing and voting rights at the AGM. This is designed to suit people outside the club system, who nevertheless wish to support the work of Whitewater NZ (especially in Access and Conservation).
Families can join for $50 (NZD) for a year's membership, receiving a single copy of NZ Canoeing and a single vote at the AGM.
Clubs may join any number of members (minimum 5) for a low $10 for a year's membership per member, receiving NZ Canoeing per member and voting rights in proportion to their current paid membership. The lower membership fee is intended as recognition of the valuable role clubs play in the New Zealand recreational canoeing community. Members who join through a club can choose to receive NZ Canoeing via the club or mailed direct (for an additional postage fee).
Clubs may mix and match Subscription durations and Mailing options to suit their member's requirements. We recommend clubs make suitable adjustments to their membership processes and forms so that their members are aware of Whitewater NZ Membership options.

Associate members may join for $30 for a year's membership, receiving NZ Canoeing (plus additional newsletter subscriptions for $10 each) but do not have voting rights. This membership class is recommended for canoe-related organisations such as outfitters, outdoor centres, Government departments and clubs that do not wish to join any members (for example, flatwater racing clubs).
