Federation Website

The webmaster reported at the last Federation meetings that since the previous report some thirty-seven ‘pages’ have been altered, seven added and two removed and that currently there were ninety-one ‘pages’ on the web site.

It was noted however that six societies still have not provided any information.

Federation Strategic Planning

Late January this year the President, Jeff Long, sent out a special note to all clubs about progress with the plan and invited comments. Actually what he said was “give us some of your valuable time, put pen to paper with whatever you think is important to say about what has been achieved so far, what remains to be done, what topics need further considerations and how we might get to where you think we need to be.”

So far, we have heard from only two clubs!

How about finding the note sent to you and spending some time considering what you want YOUR Federation to be doing!!!

Federation AGM 2001

The Federation annual general meeting for 2001 will be held at the Philatelic Centre, 67 Mandeville Street, Christchurch on 10 November 2001. It will be hosted by the Philatelic Foundation. There will be a meal, social function and philatelic event on the Saturday night and an event on Sunday. It is intended the Sunday event will conclude after lunch so delegates can return home on Sunday afternoon. The meeting of the executive committee of Federation will be held on Friday afternoon and evening and conclude on Saturday morning.

Society delegates who wish to attend should make a note of these dates.
