Institute Notes: The National Council Meeting


The Annual Dinner of the NZIIA was held on Tuesday 27 June at the Wellington Club, with about 120 present. Guest of honour was the Governor-General, Dame Silvia Cartwright, who would shortly be relinquishing her position. In her address, she commented perceptively on the evolving role of the office of governor-general, especially its increasing importance in representing New Zealand overseas. (Part of her address is to be found elsewhere in this issue.)

At the National Council meeting on 28 June, all the office holders were re-elected for a further term--Sir Kenneth Keith as President, Bruce Brown as Vice President, and Athol Mann as Treasurer. Ian McGibbon was confirmed as Managing Editor of the NZIR for another year. Three new honorary vice presidents were elected--Professor Roberto Rabel (recently arrived at Victoria University of Wellington as Pro-Vice Chancellor (International)), Stuart McMillan (long-serving member of the Canterbury branch) and Hun Doug Kidd, the former Speaker of the House of Representatives. A full list of office holders is provided below. Judge Anand Satyanand stood down from the Standing Committee in consequence of his appointment as Dame Silvia Cartwright's successor as Governor-General; on behalf of the council, the President warmly congratulated him on his elevation and thanked him for his contribution to the NZIIA.

He pointed to the need to broaden the number and scope of events to deliver a 'value proposition' to this growing and increasingly diverse group of 'stakeholders'.

Treasurer Athol Mann, in his report, indicated that the NZIIA was in a favourable position. When the council turned to the NZIR, Ian McGibbon pointed to another successful year. The financial position was sound and several younger members had joined the editorial committee. Reporting on the Research Committee's achievements in 2005, Rod Alley noted the appearance of several important publications, including the proceedings of the Corner-Laking seminar, and advised that the fourth volume of New Zealand in World Affairs was now nearing completion.

Branch delegates reported on activities in their various branches: Dr Jian Yang on Auckland, Ken Aldred on Hawke's Bay, Linda Quayle on Palmerston North, Sue Perry on Wairarapa, Peter Nicholls on Wellington, and Professor David McIntyre on Christchurch. Council members were particularly impressed to learn that the Wairarapa branch now has over a hundred members--an outstanding situation for a branch outside the main centres. …
