NZLARPs AGM 2021 - National Committee Nominations **CLOSED**


NZLARPS will be holding its 2021 AGM on Saturday 23rd October Friday 29th October at 6:30 PM. Part of the business of the AGM is to elect a committee for the upcoming year. We are therefore calling for nominations for committee.

The closing date for nominations is 6:30 PM on Saturday 16th October Friday 22nd October (7 days before the AGM). The gap is to allow time for online or email voting. It is recommended that interested candidates ensure they are nominated and seconded well before the deadline.

Every candidate for committee must be proposed and seconded by two members, but they do not themselves need to be members at the time of nomination. If you are unsure of your membership status, you can check it on or by emailing I will be contacting non-member nominators / nominees with information on how to join.

Nominations can be made by posting to the thread below, or by email to Any emailed nominations will be posted here.
