The following discussion paper provides context to the membership model currently adopted by ESNZ, including commentary on why it was adopted and how it has contributed to the financial circumstances Equestrian Sport NZ finds itself in.

It is designed to be used as a communication and consultation document with further discussion with ESNZ discipline boards, area committees and members needed.  This discussion should focus on the need for a different membership model.

It includes information about the current financial situation the organisation finds itself in and how it proposes to improve its bottom line in the next 12 to 24 months.  It is also an opportunity to futureproof the organisation so that we can keep pace with technology and digital advances.

There is an opportunity to ask ESNZ Board Members any questions you might have during the Horse of the Year Show at the ESNZ trade site from 7th – 12th March 2017 in Hastings.  We will advertise these times closer to Horse of the Year Show via the website and our facebook page.

We ask you to read this document carefully. Please send feedback in writing to Dana Kirkpatrick at by 30 March 2017.

Your feedback will then be considered by the Board at its April meeting and a recommendation made for the 2017/18 budget year prior to May 31.
