Any Personal Member of the Association or the Authorised representative of an Institutional Member in a particular Region may nominate any other Personal Member in that Region as Councillor for that Region on the National Council.

Further to the above, our own Michael Parry will not be standing for chair this year at our AGM in August. We will, therefore, need nominations for Ikaroa chairperson. Are you up for it or is there someone you know who would be? Think on it!
