The National Council


[ILLUSTRATION OMITTED]

The National Council's AGM took place in Wellington on 10 June 2011. The NZIIA's annual dinner was held the previous evening at the Wellington Club, with about 90 in attendance. This was the twenty-first such dinner, and to mark the occasion former president Sir Frank Holmes cut a cake. Outgoing president Hon Russell Marshall gave an entertaining and interesting address that focused on his experiences in international relations over half a century, as both a minister of religion and of the Crown. (The text of this address is to be found elsewhere in this issue.) Later, Timaru branch stalwart Brian Foley was presented with his life membership certificate in recognition of his service over more than two decades.

At the National Council, tributes were paid to Russell Marshall for his four-year presidency, during which the NZIIA had celebrated its 75th anniversary and moved to a new, higher level of activity. Hon Sir Douglas Kidd was elected to replace him as president. A former speaker of the House of Representatives, he has been an active member of the Wellington branch for many years.

Professor Rob Rabel was re-elected as vice president, and Professor Athol Mann as treasurer. Dr Ian McGibbon remains as managing editor of the NZIR. Terence O'Brien stood down as chair of the Research and Publications Committee, and no appointment was made to this position. It was left to the Standing Committee to consider the future role of the committee, the members of which were re-elected.

The council formally confirmed the appointment of three new life members--Brian Foley, Theo Roy and Dov Bing. More details on these new life members are provided below.

Five newcomers were appointed to the Standing Committee--Anthony Scott, the chief executive of Science New Zealand, John Ballingall, the deputy chief executive of the New Zealand Institute of Economic Research, Dr Helen Anderson QSO, an independent director of DairyNZ, and two former heads of MFAT--Richard Nottage and Neil Walter. Other members of the committee were re-elected, with the exception of Bishop Richard Randerson and Craig Greaves, both of whom stood down.

Reports were received from the president, director, the chairman of the research and publications committee and the NZIR's managing editor. The first two emphasised the substantial increase in activity that had occurred during the 75th anniversary year and that seemed to be continuing. There was extended discussion of the NZIIA's involvement in the US-New Zealand partnership project, with the president and director recalling the dramatic final meeting in Christchurch on 22 February-disrupted by the earthquake.
