Anyone who accepts the programme and constitution of the NCPA and agrees to pay dues can apply to become a member. However, it is not possible to become a member (with all the rights and obligations that entails) immediately, as a formality requiring no further effort either from you or from us. Joining a communist organisation is a serious commitment for an aspiring member, and a serious responsibility for those who are already members to help them in their unfolding political activity.
However, the NCPA is not an “elite” organisation that is difficult to join even for those who are serious. After all, communists do not fall from the sky, perfectly developed. Rather, the NCPA is a school for workers to become communists. The NCPA does not have “paper” (inactive) members; we want to activate our members in the struggle and educate them as communists. Therefore, joining the NCPA is not a formality, but a process.
Am I eligible for Communist Party membership?
- Do you accept the Constitution of the New Communist Party of Aotearoa and agree to abide by it?
- Do you agree with Towards a Socialist Aotearoa: Programme of the New Communist Party of Aotearoa?
- Are you a member of no other political party?
- Are you prepared to pay the membership dues of minimum 1 hours’ wage per month?
If the answer to all of these questions is yes, fill out the form below.
How to become a member
To start the process of becoming a member, you can fill out the contact form to your right. You can apply under the following conditions:
- You agree with our Party programme and accept our constitution.
- You are not a member of another a political party. Exceptions can be discussed, e.g. for foreign communist parties/youth, if you inform us in advance.
- You are prepared to pay the membership dues of minimum 1 hours’ wage per month.
You will be contacted by a representative of the NCPA (if you do not have a contact person already) and they will invite you to a one or two-on-one introductory meeting. Note that this is not a job interview where you must answer questions; it is just as much a chance for you to ask questions about the NCPA, to learn about our activities and positions. However, we would like to know a few things about your background (personally and politically), your motivation to join us, what you would like to contribute to our work, your basic political positions, etc.
We will keep in touch with you about your membership status and how to become involved in activities of the NCPA.
