Well, for starters the NZAC Australian Section is an extension of the NZAC in NZ !! It never made any sense for us to fall under the banner of an Australian organization such as ACA - which was very much in its infancy back in those days, and we were yet to be convinced that the ACA was really going to do all it set out to do in its charter (someone already made a comment about that). We simply didn't see the case made that this would be a better option for us in the long-term. We didn't just vote against it blindly.

Also, the mountaineering community here tends to go to NZ (and further abroad) for their chosen outdoor activity, not here in Oz. So we are much better served by the resources offered to us by long-established organisations in NZ and abroad (like the UIAA, which the NZAC is a member of and therefore we receive reciprocal benefits).

We felt we already received adequate representation at a national level - in NZ...that is why your proposal fell through with our members here, there was no perceived benefit for us.
