Update from Chairman, Graeme Pierson

GraemeAs we near the end of another year one must reflect on what has occurred over the past 12 months. The Council members and I are grateful for the assistance they have received from clubs during this period. It is pleasing to note that there have not been any controversial matters to deal this year.

Many visits have been made throughout New Zealand to clubs and district meetings of clubs by Councillors at which we have all been greeted in a kind and friendly manner, which was greatly appreciated.

Recently nominations were requested by our Returning Officer, Mrs Paulette Lawrence, for Councillors for Districts 10, 30, 40 and 80. I am pleased to announce the standing Councillor for District 40, Mrs Chris Winstanley was the only nominee and returns to Council from 1 April 2020. There was also one nomination for District 80,

Mr Graham Clayton of the Hokonui Focus Club of Gore, and he will take over this role on 1 April next. To date there have been no nominations received for either District 10 or 30.

There have been several queries received about Club lists of members. In the following
notice relating to Privacy matters, Council recommends that clubs adopt the suggested course of action. The Council have also discussed the name and actions of Almoners and suggest Clubs adopt the recommended name also. These items are covered separately below.

On behalf of Council members and myself, I would like to thank our Administrator,
Rosemarie Shaw, our Highlights Editor Margaret Finnie, and our Website Manager Erik
Vermaat, for their efforts over the past 12 months. Their input to our organisation is greatly appreciated.

On behalf of all Council members I would like to pass on best wishes to all club members and
their families and that they have a great and friendly festive season.

Kind Regards

Graeme Pierson 
Chairman, FNZI
