NELSON GROUP 25TH ANNIVERSARY
The Nelson Group of the NZ Society of Executive Secretaries was officially formed on the 31st of August 1991 with 30 members. Membership has risen and fallen over the years and we now have 35 active members. This milestone was recently celebrated at the Gala Dinner of the AAPNZ National Conference held in Nelson in August 2016.
