2020 Conference postponed - 7th Sep 2020

Executive regrettably advise that this year's conference in Queenstown is postponed until 24-26 September 2021 and will still be held in Queenstown.  

We appreciate the short notice in advising those attending of our decision, but we wanted to wait in case the decision last Friday would change to Level 1.  Unfortunately for us this did not happen.  While the Government plan to review the decision on the 14th of September, there is no guarantee that the current levels will be altered.  We consider this is the right decision for the safety of our members and their families at this time.

Solo Seal will still go ahead on Friday the 18th,and more information will follow on this. 

Our sincere thanks to the Southland Teachers and Judges for the work they have done in preparation to host our 70th conference.  We know our members will applaud their efforts.

This decision has been a real challenge for your Executive, involving many meetings and serious discussion.  At the beginning of this year none of us could have anticipated the paths that we would all travel and the sacrifices that would have to be made.  These are extraordinary times. 

Annetta Cowie

President
