25/3/2010

The chapter chair role has moved to NZ North (last year was in NZ South) and Bruce MacDonald has agreed to fill the role, as planned. There is still US$2000 funding for an initial workshop for the new chapter. The ICCA conference provided some surplus funds in NZ South, estimated at abotu $20K and 40% of this would benefit the chapter. Planned events are listed below.  As well as the workshop, four meetings are proposed across NZ, including one DL.
Committee is: Bruce (Chair) , XiaoQi Chen (Canterbury, vice-chair), Peter Xu (Massey, Albany, secretary/treasurer).
