Federation Subscriptions

The subject of Federation subscriptions will be on the agenda for the Annual General Meeting. The topic was discussed by delegates to the recent Federation meeting and proposals will be put to member societies for discussion prior to the AGM. Society delegates to the AGM should be there with authority to vote.

Federation Website

There are still a few societies who have yet not taken up the opportunity to complete a web page. It is suggested societies appoint a member to have the responsibility for ensuring the web page is maintained and kept up to date.

Society secretaries who do not have access to the web can contact the webmaster, Bob Gibson, 10 The Anchorage, Whitby, Wellington 6006 who will provide a hard copy of their web page for checking.

The Federation web site has been entered into the FIP web site competition.

New Federation Member

We are pleased to welcome the Society of Australasian Specialists / Oceania as a member of the Federation. The contact for the Society is Dr Paul Tyler, 1023 Rocky Point Court, N E Alburquerque, New Mexico 87123-1944, USA.

Judging Seminar

A judging workshop is to be held by Robert Samuel on September 2 and 3 at the Science Centre & Museum, Main Street, Palmerston North. For further details please contact Bryan Ogier at P O Box 786, Palmerston North or Judging Workshop.
