If you are interested in being part of the committee of the NZHS, do let Helen know (preferably at least 24 hours prior to the AGM!). In our constitution, we don’t have a written deadline for this, but in terms of keeping the AGM brief it is good if there are no surprises on the day!
The outgoing committee has spent some time discussing how best to use the capital that the Society has had invested for a number of years. The Harp Society is sitting on funds raised from a conference held in Wellington in 2004. The question is, do we try and hold another conference? Or use the money on other projects to make the Society more relevant to harp players in NZ today.
If you have strong opinions about this, I really encourage you to stand for nomination for the next committee, and be part of this discussion!
Helen Webby (current President 2014/15)
