This term sees a couple of changes to the CPPA Executive.

Term 4 2021 and we have a couple of changes to announce for the CPPA Executive.

The term of office for CPPA President is two years, and having started my term on that unfortunate date of March 15 2019, my term came to an end in March of this year. 

However, due to some internal changes within the executive, I willingly continued the role into 2021, with the proviso that it would be relinquished by February 2022, if not before determined by any situations that could arise.

As it so happened, I was fortunate to have won the Principal position at Rangiora Borough commencing term 4 of 2021, and soon after received the news that I was elected also to the NZPF executive to begin 2022.

I therefore announce, that at our last executive meeting of Term 3, 17 October, my resignation as President was accepted, and following constitutional process, Sandy Hastings, current NZPF Executive member and CPPA communications liaison, was duly elected unopposed as CPPA President, beginning Term 4 2021.

I now move into the role as Immediate Past President, supporting Sandy in her position, and in many of the reference groups and meetings the CPPA is requested to be part of.

The rest of the CPPA executive remains largely unchanged, with a great workstream ahead supporting colleagues across the greater Canterbury region.

Thank you for all the support I have received from so many people in this role. I still hope to see as many of you as possible as I continue being an active member of the CPPA Executive.

Just a reminder … Please remember to update your details on the CPPA website, so we can ensure all contact details are correct.
