The Sea Cadet Association of New Zealand was
formed in 1991 as the recognised civilian support organisation for the Sea Cadet corps (SCC).
The Sea Cadet units had previously been supported by the Navy league of New Zealand.SCANZ is comprised of a National Executive in
Wellington and Support Committees in each Sea Cadet unit all across New Zealand. The
President, Secretary and Treasurer of the National Executive are elected every two
years by the membership. The purpose of the National Executive is to
make policy for the guidance of Unit Committees and to liaise with National stakeholders such
as the Navy, RNZRSA, NZCF (NZ Cadet Forces) and NZDF (NZ Defence Force). The National
Executive is also responsible for the provision of assets such as boats and boat equipment and
in some cases Sea Cadet buildings. The local SCANZ unit committees are
responsible for the management of the unit assets and for local support such as fundraising for
Unit events and smaller assets. SCANZ is an incorporated society under the
Incorporated Societies Act 1908 and is a registered Charity under the Charities Act 2006.
