2014 Annual Meeting Invitation - Wellington, Friday 17 October

Tēnā koutou katoa

We are sending you this invitation because all registered charities are invited to our annual meeting, and you are listed as the contact for one or more registered charities.

The annual meeting is an opportunity for charities to find out more about our work and we welcome your questions and submissions during the open forum session.

We also invite you to be inspired by:

Dr Sharad Paul, author, skin cancer specialist; founder of the Baci Foundation which runs literacy and mentoring programmes for disadvantaged children. True democracy of heroism lies in the recognition that you and I, all ordinary people, can be capable of extraordinary acts of courage and conviction ~ Sharad Paul

Sue van Schreven, who founded Orphan’s Aid International with her husband Carl 10 years ago. The trust now has projects in 6 countries, and feeds approximately 700 children a day. “Some wish to live within Church or Chapel bell, I want to build a rescue shop within a yard of hell." C.T Studd

Afternoon tea will be served.

Registration is essential – by Friday 10 October 2014

We suggest registering a maximum of two people from each charity, to be fair to all those who may wish to attend. The venue seats a maximum of 328 people. Please let us know if you have any accessibility needs.
