Patrols and Memberships (PAM) database

This section contains information for club database administrators who have been assigned their own access login and password for the SLS PAM (Patrols and Memberships) database.

What is PAM?

PAM is a central database for all Surf Life Saving clubs in New Zealand. It is used to log details of members (contact details, awards, memberships etc) and patrols and incidents. PAM holds this information securely, and the data gives us an understanding of trends across the whole organisation. All clubs must log their members, patrols and incidents onto PAM.

New SLSNZ Patrols and Memberships Database

In July 2015, Surf Life Saving New Zealand's new PAM database went live, replacing the current system. For more information contact Georgia McLaren | Website and Database Administrator |
