Otago Section of the New Zealand Alpine Club

Signing up for an account

If you are interested in joining an event, you will need to sign-up for an account. Members and non-members of the New Zealand Alpine Club are welcome, but only members can organize events. To sign up for an account, email the webmaster at from the email address you wish to be associated with the account with your full name and a photo or scan of your current NZAC membership card. If you have not received your member card yet, please send a screenshot of your order confirmation with your membership expiry date clearly visible. If you do not include a copy of your card you will be registered for a guest account which will restrict you to 6 trips per 12 month period. You should be signed up for an account within 24 hours.

Email settings

You can choose to receive email notifications from the OSONZAC regarding new events posted to the calendar. To change your email preferences, go to Member Information and select the types of events about which you wish to be notified and from which sections.

If you sign up for an event, you will receive email notifications if your status in the event changes (e.g. moving from the wait-list to the participants list) or if the event is deleted.

If you are organizing an event, you will receive notifications when someone signs up for your event.

Membership renewal

Member accounts revert to guest accounts when your NZAC membership expires. In order to retain your member account, please send a copy or scan of your member card or of your renewal invoice to the webmaster.
