Dear Hawkes Bay Branch members

Warm greetings to you. I am glad to be invited to meet with you June 27th for an early evening Conversation group gathering. I look forward to an opportunity to link you in with my work and connect you with some of the themes and issues and outcomes that are arising in the Society nationally and internationally. From 5.30 I will be bringing news from the recent international meetings and some of the topics that have developed from these. I will bring a reminder about the Council’s activity and its members here in New Zealand and the work being done currently. Additionally there is news to share around the Society Day and AGM in August as well as other activities from different regions. I welcome your questions prior: and there also will be time for discussion before our meeting closes at 6.45 pm.

Until then

Warm regards, Michelle Vette.


Please note that this Conversation gathering is beginning at 5.15 p.m. so  people with daytime jobs have the opportunity to attend.
