  Happy New Year! Every second Monday we will send out an association Newsletter that contains key information that Hockey New Zealand is needing to communicate with you and your members.   This is a really key piece of information that we will be using to communicate with you. If we are missing any of your staff off this email then please let me know and I will make sure they are added to our database.   
    The best way to enjoy the upcoming FIH Hockey Pro League home matches, Presented by Sentinel Homes, is in the relaxed and vibrant atmosphere of an official hospitality experience.
Premium covered seats afford prime match viewing, delicious food and award-winning wine and beverages, big screen TV to catch the replays in the new pavilion lounge at North Harbour or our corporate marquee in Christchurch.

Host clients or prospects, treat your staff, surprise your partner or friend for a memorable anniversary or birthday, or as a very special Christmas gift! Purchase your hospitality experience package today here, or for more information on North Harbour click here or Christchurch click here. We look forward to hosting you.  
Masters Advisory Group
  At the final meeting of the year, the Masters Advisory Group held a planning session looking forward to 2020. A key outcome was clarification of purpose; To encourage more people to participate in masters hockey (35+) across the country through key areas including but not limited to; game development (including coach/umpire Development), competitions/events (products), Marketing/Communications. The group will act to ensure there are sustainable systems, structures and processes in place to provide a quality Masters hockey experience for the first time player, coach, umpire or manager right through to those at the National Level. There will be a significant focus to build stronger relationships with local Associations around the country in an effort to achieve this overarching outcome.  
  Masters Advisory Group (as at November 2019): Anil Nathoo – Upper North Island Geoff Williamson – Central North Island Leah Murphy – Lower North Island / Upper South Island Lee Munt – Central South Island Tania Cassidy – Lower South Island   Any feedback or questions please contact [email protected]

Member Registration and Transfer Process for 2020
  With the design, build and implementation of the new Microsoft Dynamics Membership Management and CRM about to get underway with a soft, staged rollout happening throughout the remainder of the year, HNZ has been asked by Associations to advise on the interim registration and transfer process for Associations, clubs and players for the 2020 season.
We are in the stages of finalising this process and are currently peer reviewing our proposal.
This will be sent out to Associations within the next 2 weeks and further details will also be included in the next edition of Association News
In the meantime, should you have any questions about the Registration and Transfer Process for 2020 or the technology project in general (we are still looking for people interested in the working groups!), please contact Rachel on [email protected]
