Te Tau Ihu o te Waka a Maui – Top of the South

The Nelson regional group comprises about 18 NZAP members and meetings continue on a monthly basis.  Gradual changes in membership occur with retirements and new people arriving from other regions. There are two Provisional Members supported by supervisors from this region.

We don’t have a convenor but several people have been taking turns at facilitating reminders of meetings and keeping some focus. We alternate presentations with a Balint style group. Several people attend when they can from a distance (Blenheim, Motueka, and Karamea) and good connections are made within the group. Average attendance is about 6-8 people and recent presentations have been well appreciated.

Cultural Aroha continues with Pele Fa’auli on a monthly basis.
