May 2015 )

The AGM will be held on Saturday 30th May at the Linden Community Centre in Tawa Wellington.

There will be some activities (trips) on Sunday.

Accommodation: There is a motel available in Tawa (Bucket Tree Lodge) or either in Johnsonville or Porirua. Both only 10 minutes drive from venue. Free billets will be available and pick up from accommodation to venue for those with out cars should not be a problem.

Registration will be Saturday morning, although a get together can be planned for early arrivals on Friday.

Pickup and drop offs to train, ferry or airport can be arranged for those requiring it.

For specific information about travel or accommodation options, contact the KMAC Secretary (Dominique Hawinkels)

A registration fee has not been set, but if there is one it should be minimal.

Evening meals have not been factored in at this stage as this is dependent on expected numbers attending.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Clubs, please forward any remits to be considered at this AGM to secretary@fnzas.org.nz by 14 March 2015.

Clubs, please send any changes of delegates to secretary@fnzas.org.nz by 14 April 2015. Further details will be posted as they come to hand.

Would you please send at least one representative to the meeting. It is the best way for your members to find out what is going on. There are airfare specials around and it would be nice if you would contribute to your representatives costs.

As with any AGM all positions are up for grabs.

The following positions do require filling as the current office holders are stepping down for differing reasons (most have been in their roles for a number of years) -

President

Secretary

Treasurer

Breeding Co-ordinator

The Executive needs people who will actively promote the Federation and it's Clubs, be it through the internet or in the community. People who will follow through on their promises.

Support will be given particularly to those taking on one of the bigger roles on the Executive.

All Executive positions, President, 2 Vice Presidents, Secretary, Treasurer, Breeding Co-ordinator, Editor and three Executive Committee are required to be filled.

Please consider taking up a position. If you have any questions email secretary@fnzas.org.nz

The constitution states that clubs are to forward Conference Delegates names by 14 April. Clubs do not need to wait until their next AGM to decide who will represent them at conference.

If the names of conference delegates are not received then the delegates previously elected are the ones given the voting rights. Documents for the AGM will be posted to them at the beginning of May to take to their club May meeting.

If clubs choose not to give me the names of conference delegates then so be it. It will be up to you to chase the documentation down.

Thank you Tasman and Christchurch for giving me your information.

Hi Maxi

The Wellington clubs are hosting conference - the Exec just runs and controls the meetings. I am sure you would be more than welcome to come along for us much as you wish - so flick kmacnz@yahoo.co.nz an email. :) That will give the organisers an idea of numbers.

Hi Adrienne,

Just discovered yesterday that what I thought I was doing on the weekend of the Wellington trip fell through, so I would be really keen to go. Is there any additional info I need to know?

Sorry for this being somewhat last minute :/
