Notice of the 2015 AGM, Strategy Workshop and Awards of Excellence

Posted by SLSNZ Media on Thursday, May 14, 2015

Surf Life Saving New Zealand has confirmed the dates for the 2015 Annual General Meeting (AGM), Club Chairs Strategy Workshop and national Awards of Excellence.

The three events will take place on Saturday September 19 at the Amora Hotel in Wellington.

The Strategy Workshop will take place from 10.30am-3pm followed by the AGM from 4pm-5.30pm with the Awards of Excellence beginning at 6.30pm.

Strategy workshop:

All Clubs are invited to send their Chairperson (or an appropriate alternative delegate) to attend the Strategy Workshop. Logically to minimise Clubs travel costs the workshop attendee would be the same person as attending the AGM and the Awards Dinner that follows. Due to capacity limits at the venue it will only be possible for clubs to send one delegate.

This is the only opportunity in the year for all Clubs to get together to discuss matters of strategic importance so the SLSNZ Board strongly encourage everyone to participate.

To assist with catering, Clubs will be asked to confirm their delegate by 5pm on Wednesday 19th August, the same time as confirming their AGM delegate.
