Christmas Greetings from the Equity NZ president
Tēnā koutou katoa e ngā manu wheko ata,
Ka rere aku mihi ki a koutou katoa i runga anō i te āhuatanga o tēnei wa Kirihimete - te āhua nei ko te wā pukumahi ake o te tau mō tātou katoa! Me mihi ka tika ki te pōari me ngā komiti i whakapau wera ai i ngā mārama kua hipa kia tipu ai tō tātou nei uniana. Ka mutu pea te mīharo o ā koutou mahi e ngā manawa tītī. Ki a koutou kua whai wāhi ki ngā hōtaka o te uniana - kei runga noa atu koutou.
Mēnā ka whakatā koutou, kia ahuru te noho. Ki te mahi tonu ētahi o koutou, kia kaha e hoa mā!
Ko tōku tino tūmanako, ka heke mai he 2016 rawe rawa atu mā tātou katoa.
Ka mihi tonu taku ngākau ki a koutou.
Christmas greetings to you all at what seems to be the busiest time of the year!. My deepest thanks and appreciation must go to the board and committees for your outstanding work over the year supporting us to grow in union. You all give your time freely and generously and it is very much appreciated by the membership. Thank you to all of you that have participated in Green Rooms, professional development programmes, sat on panels, attended Graduation Day or the Equity Lifetime Achievement Award night, those who engaged in union - you’re all terrific.
I hope you all have a relaxing break, and if you’re working through - kia kaha e hoa mā!
May 2016 be everything you wish for and more.
(Jennifer Ward-Lealand, Equity president)
