Update from Chairman Denys Boshier

Probus New Zealand Incorporated (PNZI) and its associated clubs are in good heart if the activity at our first AGM held at the Holiday Inn, Mangere at 11am on Saturday August 29th is any indication. Initially we expected that about 30 PNZI-affiliated clubs might send their representatives; but we had some 110 attendees, representing clubs from both the North Island and the South Island. There are now 277 Pro-bus clubs affiliated to PNZI - just on 67% of all the New Zealand clubs. We were delighted to see such interest in how PNZI is progressing since the inaugu-ral PNZI meeting on April 17/18 when the Steering Committee handed over the responsibility of the PNZI Centre to the new, democratically-elected Council of six members.
My Report to the AGM is sent as a separate attachment with this newsletter.
In my AGM report, I drew the members' attention to the 15 topics
seen by Council as being basic to the provision of a PNZI Support Centre which would be available through our website to the clubs, District Associations and the public. The members attending agreed that expecting six Councillors to fulfil this task was unreasonable and accepted the challenge that the Centre members, that is the affiliated clubs and the District Associations, would have to increase the number of Councillors or undertake to contribute to the administration of the PNZI Centre. This matter is to be considered further by Council and the Centre members.
Other matters considered from the Agenda included the necessity for more efficient communication be-tween the Council and the clubs. Council will consider this and support the Councillors in their efforts to communicate with their clubs at least monthly. Clubs must make their own arrangements for the dispersal of these communications and the PNZI newsletters to their members.
