2020 NZPPS AGM

Wednesday 2 September 2020 1pm-3pmC1, Commerce Building, Lincoln University

We are required to hold an Annual General Meeting to present the audited accounts to 30 April 2020 so we are proposing to hold a brief one on Wednesday 2 September at Lincoln University from 1pm to 3pm.

We are asking our Canterbury members to attend the AGM in person so that we can achieve a quorum, which requires 15 people. Refreshments will be provided after the AGM. We also plan to use Zoom so members can log in and participate if they wish.

We will present only the reports from the President, Treasurer, Editor and Web-Editor plus Election of Officers in order to keep the AGM to within two hours. The reports will be loaded on the NZPPS website www.nzpps.org for members to view from 17 August 2020.

Election of Officers:  As is normally done at the AGM, we are calling for nominations for membership of the Executive Committee and the Offices of the Society (President, Vice-President, Treasurer and Secretary). All nominations require a seconder and an accompanying statement about the nominee. Please email Jenny Taylor for the nomination form by 7 August 2020 so we can organise an election if needed secretary@nzpps.org.

If you have any general business that cannot be held over to the 2021 AGM then please email details to Jenny Taylor secretary@nzpps.org by 7 August 2020. This time frame will enable the Executive to decide whether any such matters should be put to the AGM or discussed at the first Executive meeting after the AGM. NZPPS Medal and NZPPS Travel Award: We are not asking for nominations for the 2020 NZPPS Medal or the NZPPS Travel Award as we are not holding an annual dinner this year. You are still welcome to make a nomination but it will be considered in the 2021 award round.
