  1. Kia ora koutou te Komiti,
    As you all will have read or might I say should have read the NOHANZ Constitution you will note that it has been a legally constituted and established Organisation since April 1986 – 2 months short of celebrating it’s 34th birthday.

    NOHANZ is a stand-alone organisation with its own MANA.

    So why is it that the executive has thought it appropriate to advertise the 2020 NOHANZ Conference with the Stout Research Centre as the lead organisation in the Title?
    It is the NOHANZ conference in association with the Stout Research Centre and yes they should be acknowledged for their contribution too.

    If, as I’ve been told they are contributing b allaying costs, that does not mean they over-ride NOHANZ in the advertisements and especially on the NOHANZ website.

    I sternly object and ask that it be corrected into the proper format – you did it last time including acknowledging the contributing organisation.

    Kia tika ra….

    1. E te koka, Taina, tena koe, Thankyou for your korero. To be clear – this was not a decision made by the NOHANZ Exec, but by the conference organising komiti which is a separate komiti made up of various local stakeholders (with some NOHANZ exec reps) dedicated to planning our hui later in the year. I have just seen this myself (I have been abroad for some time and have returned this month here to Aotearoa). I agree. We will re-open this korero with our friends and conference host partners. He mihi.

      1. Welcome back Mahuika, and thank you for your response.
        The executive committee has the final decision for ALL NOHANZ business including over-riding sub-committees. I expect the Title on all NOHANZ correspondence, brochures etc to be formatted correctly.
        Any contributing stakeholders acknowledged in the normal format – that is following or below the headline never above.

  2. Kia ora John

    I wonder if any of the upcoming workshops scheduled for Auckland, Wellington or Dunedin (natlib.govt.nz) suit your purposes?
    Please contact me if you would like any further information or advice.
