From the Paihia conference the APFBA noted down 17 action points and 12 innovated ideas that were received from the floor.
President Grahame Howell and Senior Vice President Herena Paurini attended the Annual Meeting of UFBA Board and Provincial Association Executives in Wellington on 16th & 17th of July. We had the pleasure of meeting with Bill Butzbach – newly appointed Chief Executive Officer, Rick Braddock – Chairman, Glen Williams – Deputy Chairman, Judith Standley – Director, Russell Anderson – Director, Alan Kittely – President, Joe Manihera – Vice President, Hayley Bilton – PA to Bill Butzbach and members of 6 other Provincials.
Confidently we raised 45% of the action points and innovated ideas received from our members, this was due to time restrictions and having consideration for 6 other Provincials who also arrived to engage in the many conversations that took place. Our members can have equal confidence, the UFBA executive team have ask APFBA to continue the conversation with them to discuss the remaining 55% outstanding matters, which we will be doing.
APFBA will put together a power point presentation and discuss with the Presidents of the Northland, Auckland and Goldfields Sub Association to have this delivered at their next AGM.
Oh behalf of the 7 Provincials throughout NZ, Auckland Provincial will be front footing the overall Provincial plan at this years UFBA Conference in Auckland. Our presenters will be President Grahame Howell and Senior Vice President Herena Paurini.
A big thank you to Hayley Bilton for successfully coordinating the mammoth job of getting 7 provincials to the meeting.
