Institute Notes: The National Council and Branch Activities


The Annual Dinner of the NZIIA was held on Friday 31 May at the Wellington Club. The Governor-General, HE Dame Silvia Cartwright, the guest of honour, spoke about transition in Bahrain and East Timor, two countries she had visited recently. (The text of her address appears elsewhere in this issue.)

At the National Council meeting on 1 June, Sir Kenneth Keith was re-elected as President of the NZIIA. Other office holders were re-elected, with Bryce Harland and Roger Peren added to the list of honorary vice presidents. A full list of office holders is provided below.

Reports were received on the work of the committees of the Standing Committee as well as from the various branches. These were seen as providing a useful base for the discussion of the branches' different approaches to the NZIIA's work. In his report the Director, Gerald McGhie, referred to the need for adaptability in some of the areas of the Institute's work. Given the increasing importance of the seminar programme, he recommended that a Seminar Committee be established. He paid particular attention to the work of the branches, which he saw as the backbone of the organisation. The Standing Committee wanted to assist branch work, especially, where necessary, on financial management. The Director distributed an outline of the Standing Committee's website, which became operational two weeks after the National Council meeting. The work of Tyson Schmidt, a newly elected member of the Standing Committee, in establishing the website was especially commended by the meeting.

Hon Richard Prebble, Leader of the ACT Party, spoke to the meeting after lunch. His challenging and at times provocative comments led to a lively exchange of views. (His address is also to be found elsewhere in this issue.)
