The Auckland Windsurfing Association inaugural meeting

The Auckland Windsurfing Association is now ready to be officially formed.
The aim is to incorporate the Association. Incorporation means that the Association’s property (money, rescue boat? website, buoys, trophies etc) will in future be held by the Association instead of by the members for the time being. The Association can also then enter contracts and open a bank account. The members will only have to pay their subscriptions and can not become liable for any debts or liability the Association may incur.
