pan-NGO delegate announcement + next forum date

This message has just been sent to our registry...

We hope your 2013 has been off to a positive start.  We have two important announcements about the panNGO Delegate appointments and about our next panNGO forum.

Firstly, two people have been appointed to fill the role of panNGO Delegate to the CERA Community Wellbeing Planning Group as announced in a press release we linked to in our blog last week.  Reflecting Treaty relationships, the position will be filled by Wendy Dallas-Katoa (tangata whenua) and Sara Epperson (tangata Tiriti).  Their contact details are below.

      Wendy Dallas-Katoa: dallaskatoa [at] clear [dot] net [dot] nz    *phone number available on request 
      Sara Epperson: sepperson [at] pgfnz [dot] org [dot] nz     *phone number available on reques

If you have not yet met Wendy or Sara, you will have the opportunity to do so at our next NGO Sector Open Forum on Monday 11-March from 9am - 11am at the EPIC Centre (which is on Manchester Street between Tuam and St Asaph -- more info about the building at the EPIC website).  UPDATE: This event is now being held at the YMCA on Hereford Street; see the next blog post for more information about the updated location.  Please mark your calendar.  We look forward to discussing the issues facing our sector.
Kia kaha,
