Established 1937

 73rd National Conference

Hosted by the Southern Lakes Branch, Queenstown

11th - 13th June 2021


How to register 

The weekend is ultimately made up of 4 elements:-

1. AGM - the National Secretary as per the  constitution (voting rights etc) is there to ensure this is the formal part of conference *
2. The popular and national AHT (Antler, Horn and Tusk) and Photo competition
3. Conference - Guest Speakers to educate, inspire and excite members of the association
4. Networking, and workshop options - your chance to share knowledge and friendships

*The National Secretary has helped facilitate discussions (that everyone was invited to attend via Zoom) to ensure that the AGM is a productive 3 hour AGM (and less of the onerous and laborious 2 day event.)

Zoom option
Due to the successful Zoom conference last year, there is also this option available as well. However to ensure there is professional audio and video streaming, there is a cost to this. 

When you register, choose "Zoom attendance" $174 (a great option to stream to committee members keen to be involved but can't attend in person)

Attending Conference in person (Registration closes 12th May)
We encourage as many members as possible to attend. As explained above, the formal part ie the AGM on Saturday morning is run by the National Secretary and you will need to register to represent your branch. It is imperative you register for Covid tracking purposes too.

If you just want to attend the guest speakers on the Saturday and the workshops on the Sunday, there is still a cost as we are providing conferencing facilities, supplying morning & afternoon tea and a full sit down lunch. This cost is $174pp

Attending only the Functions
There will be a fantastic opportunity to listen to guest speakers and meet Hunters from all over at the evening functions.
All members are encouraged to come to Queenstown for the weekend and attend these.

Please see the functions page for full information and as speakers are confirmed we will update the website information.

Note on costs:
The cost $174 to attend the AGM and conference not only covers lunch and morning/ afternoon tea, but covers costs associated with securing guest speakers, the technology to Zoom the conference and the hire of the conference facilities and all the behind the scenes expenses.

The branch have worked hard to keep costs to a minimum and will be running the conference with volunteers from the membership.

Covid-19
Due to the possibility of a return to Covid restrictions, you are advised to book the Crowne Plaza accommodation as we have negotiated Covid cancellation clauses or if staying elsewhere please book direct with a hotel. This is because it is not easy to get refunds when you use a booking site.

We are also limiting the conference room on Sat and AGM to 100 people to allow for social distancing if required.

Book early to avoid disappointment
