Thanks for putting this page up, it's been on my "to do" list for a couple of weeks. Committee did have a few ideas discussed at our last meeting and we've got another meeting this week to talk about Chainlinks contributons.


We need to make sure that this is up to date. Changes I know of are:

  • Deputy Chair - delete (or post as "vacant")
  • Secretary - replace with Acting Secretary, David Hawke,
  • Media contacts - I'm not sure if Anne Fitzsimon is still current in this role

Anything else people are aware of?

thanks Davidd tose are good points. I need to check with Graeme who's handling the main media contact - him and Patrick I think, but not sure if Glen's involved too. 

Under 'e.CAN newsletter editor', replace with

Another thing I spotted was on the 'Join online or clip this form' bit (p.17 of last issue)- at the bottom it has 'Freepost 25424'- unless we have a new Freepost arrangement with NZ Post, is this just a hangover from the old one we had on the Auckland box?  If so it should be deleted.

I'm not on the list above, but I understand that I am to submit an article following up on my previous one on 'Lobbying' ... talking about progress and thoughts in the Christchurch context. Word length? 400 words or thereabouts? (guidance welcome on this).
