It is with sadness that we announce that due to work commitments, Mark Leonida has resigned from his position on the Executive Board.  His role as Education Officer will be filled for the remainder of the year by Alarna Tuck with support from Cherry Holliday and Moss Henderson.

2012 AGM and Training Day

The 2012 AGM is tentatively booked for Wellington in May next year, so keep these weekends free until we are able to confirm a date (in the coming weeks).  Also, there will be a training day held in New Zealand in early 2012, so please stay posted for more information.

Accreditation Requirements Reminder 
Please note that for full members who wish to be accreditted for the 2012/2013 year, six case studies must be completed and uploaded to the site or emailed to for the admin team to upload, before 31 March 2012.  In addition to this, membership subscriptions must be paid (these will be emailed out in February for the coming accreditation year - 1 April 2012 through 31 March 2013), as well as an NZOPA run or approved training day attended.  For a list of training days that will count towards your accreditation, please see the homepage or email if you would like to make sure.
