Club ‘how to’ resources
Available on the Outdoor Community section of our Wilderlife.nz blog.
FMC has been researching, compiling and publishing a growing list of resources for clubs, which give helpful ‘how-to’ advice for many aspects of running a club. From how to run photo competitions, gear hire services, attracting and retaining new members or trip leaders to club publications and archiving. This information is gathered as part of FMC’s wider Outdoor Community Campaign, and we welcome feedback or input to improving the resource.
FMC is asked from time to time to comment on the liability of member clubs in the event of a fire or accident occurring on a club trip. The following documents which give general guidelines have been prepared to help explain the situation to clubs.
