I nominate
Alastair Kirkby for regional director
Mani for regional treasurer
Sarah for Marketing officer
Derek for Regional Equipment Officer (gear officer)
and myself (Kirsten) for regional secretary

I second all of these except my own (because I don’t think I’m allowed to), and accept my nomination.

I second the final nomination and accept my nomination


I accept my nomination.

I accept my nomination

Kia ora! My name is Sally and I’d like to put my hat in the ring and nominate myself for general committee. Full disclosure - I’ll be living in Christchurch until some time in December finishing off my teaching degree. I’m moving for sure in December to be with my partner, who has had to relocate to Auckland for work. Of course, this does mean that I won’t be able to attend any meetings in person (though I am happy to attend via phone or Skype) until December. I totally understand if this means I am not a preferred candidate for committee-ship.

To sweeten the deal, I am fairly experienced working on committees. I’m currently the secretary for the South Island branch of NZLARPs, and the president of SAGA Inc. at UC. I have previously been president of SciFi Soc at UC. I am sad to be leaving behind all my committee roles in Te Waipounamu so I’d love the opportunity to get stuck in with the Auckland committee and put my best foot forward in my new city.


And she’s done an amazing job. IMO Sally would be a great addition to the Auckland committee.


Would you like to second her?

He’s not a member of the Auckland region, so he can’t.
