HOW TO BE INVOLVED
Become a Member | Join the Committee | Become a Helper
Become a Supporter | Become a Sponsor | How to become involved
There are several ways that you can become involved with the Paparoa A&P Show and your involvement can be tailored to suit you.
- As a member you make a small financial contribution of $15.00 (the membership fee) This entitles you to have a say in the running of the North Kaipara Agricultural Association Incorporated (NKAA) and be kept informed about NKAA’s progress and new developments. There are also positive financial rewards from being a Member. See Membership on this site.
If you have time, interest and skills then NKAA would welcome your interest in becoming a Committee Member.
You will have a commitment to preserving the A&P Show and its heritage and enjoy being a team player as well. Your skills may be a willingness to contribute practical hands-on help, computer skills, or an ability to plan projects and generate ideas.
NKAA usually has 8 people on the Committee who are elected at the AGM. However this is not a fixed number and new members are welcome at any time.
It is very satisfying to know that you have kept a tradition alive and made a difference to the North Kaipara community. And we have fun as well.
Helpers give help in many ways. It may be for just a couple of hours, half a day, a day or for more. It is how you can become involved without any commitment to being on a committee or to attending regular meetings.
The Show needs lots of helpers to complement the efforts of the Committee. The day before Show Day is usually busy setting things up and the day after Show Day is busy too, taking things down. During the year there are tasks like painting, planting, computer work and telephone follow-ups where you may be able to help.
Can you help? We would love to hear from you.
- Supporters help throughout the year giving of their services and/or products or financial contributions. Show Supporters make smaller financial contributions to the Show, often sponsoring prizes. Major Supporters give very significant support in the form of labour, services, products or discounts. All support is great because without it the Association would struggle.
The overall purpose of sponsorship is to improve the infrastructure and quality of the NKAA Showground and the Paparoa A&P Show.
For example: sponsorship paid for this website and the new signage that you will see around North Kaipara and at the Showground. Also we will improve this year’s competitor prizes and introduce gate prizes as a result of sponsorship. See Sponsors and Supporters on this site.
