Media Enquiries

The New Zealand Alpine Club is often asked for comment from the media whether regarding an accident in the mountains, or to do with matters concerning the alpine environment.

All enquiries from the media should be directed through the Club's National Office in Christchurch. Please ask for Sam Newton, the General Manager, in the first instance. If he is not available, then Margaret McMahon will be able to pass enquiries on to the next most suitable representative who is able to speak, or assist, on the Club's behalf.

Please do not attempt to access other Club members via information available on this website. We have a set proceedure in place to prevent misinformation and to assist co-ordination, especially in the event of an accident, or natural disaster.

Your co-operation is greatly apreciated.
