Mānawatia a Matariki
To all members I hope you have made the most of this important time to spend time with friends and whanau.
It is a time of reflection and planning and I have had Covid which has allowed time for exactly this.
Thinking of all our members and families who have passed in the last year.
Special Call to members
We need your help and engagement as a voluntary organisation it relies on interaction and input from members especially at the group level.
This is how we thrive and feel like we are part of the NZOHNA whanau. I have always felt our organisation is rather special in how we come together. Several members have moved from being corporate members to professional members and we are hoping that this is through the realisation of the benefits of being part of a national professional group. We cannot urge you enough to become engaged in your groups as we all have something to contribute or to assist others.
Covid and several factors have meant members have not been connecting, meeting in person or virtually. Right now, we need real energy and input to take the amazing work the project teams have done and move forward.
This cannot be left to the few. If you are unsure how to connect with your local group, please contact me.
The Challenge for you all.
Is for all groups to meet in July discuss the remits and pick their representatives for the AGM in September. – This needs to be completed by 16th
This is a collaborative and consultative process that we need to go through, no matter how long you have been a member of NZOHNA.
