NOTICES: New President, NZYSW, Membership

Annual General Meeting 2023

The 2023 NZCBA Annual General Meeting was held at 10:00 am on Saturday 30 September, via MS Teams.  The business of the meeting was be to:

  • receive the annual reports on the affairs of the society, including the financial report; and
  • elect officers to the vacant positions on the Executive Committee.

We have elected Richard Breed as President of NZCBA.

At this point it is appropriate to acknowledge and thank Anthony Yelavich who served at as President since 2021. He has achieved significant milestones, especially in constitutional reform. Our new constitution should guide the Association for decades to come. It is transparent and direct, and complies with all new legislation. Anthony lead the Association with a calm and considered manner, using his love of music making and knowledge of corporate law to make sensible and positive decisions. Thank you, Anthony, for your guidance and service. Go well in your future work over in UK, but please come back!
