Update from Chairman, Graeme Pierson

Graeme

As we near the end of another year I would like to reflect on some of the matters the Council has been involved with over the past twelve months. Council members are very pleased to see the number of affiliated Clubs that have now chosen to adopt the Friendship name into their club names. I am happy to report that all our 173 clubs have now paid their affiliation fees for this Friendship year and thank all those clubs that were able to make a donation to assist mainly with legal costs. Your generosity has been greatly appreciated by Council.

At our recent Annual General Meeting the constitution for Friendship New Zealand Inc. was adopted and is now in place. The Club Constitution is available on the website in the Club Area under Club Resources. This is a sample constitution which clubs should adopt and where required add any matters they see fit for their own use. Where possible it would be appreciated that the clubs send a copy to our Administrator for our records.

I would like to thank Secretary Jim Taylor for his work in firstly, arranging the production of our badges and emblems which are now available to all clubs and secondly, he has of late produced “Flyers” which will shortly be available to clubs for their use as a method of attracting new members. Jim has had a bad run with his health and we trust that he will be back to full good health again shortly.

 

With regards to Club visits by Councillors, we have adopted a process that where a club is celebrating a milestone in their history a Councillor will attend such events when requested or, where there is an event that the club decides there is a problem they may request a visit. We believe that it is a better use of our financial resources that area meetings are arranged with the member clubs in that area.

On behalf of Council I would like to thank our Centre Administrator, Rosemarie, for the great work she is doing for our organization. I would also like to thank Margaret for the time she spends on preparing our newsletter “Highlights”. Both ladies are doing a great job for all members of our organisation. I would like to advise clubs that if they require an Affiliation Certificate please contact Rosemarie either at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or by Freephone 0800 33 55 44.

I would like to thank all Councillors for their assistance over the past twelve months.

On behalf of all Councillors and our Administration people I wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year.

Kind regards
Graeme Pierson, Chairman FNZI
