YHA New Zealand is a not for profit membership-based organisation.

Special General Meeting

YHA New Zealand has been adversely affected by the impact of national and international travel restrictions associated with Covid-19. The consequences have proven material for YHA New Zealand during 2020 and 2021. The National Board decided to call a Special General Meeting to update members and to engage on this subject.

Prior to the 2021 AGM, a Special General Meeting (SGM) was held at 9am on Saturday 27 November 2021, at the West Plaza Hotel, Wellington to consider the future direction of YHA New Zealand, including in respect of its property interests. The SGM was live-streamed.


Annual General Meeting

The 2021 AGM was held on Saturday 27 November 2021 at the West Plaza Hotel, Wellington, and was also live-streamed for members to attend virtually.

For more information on our past AGMs, please read more below.
