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.

HEALTH & WELLBEING with Jaron Steffens
Jaron Steffens has been working as a fitness trainer, lifestyle coach, and mental skills coach since 1997. He has a degree and post-graduate diploma in psychology, diplomas in teaching, and child and adolescent psychology.
Jaron currently works as mental skills coach with high achieving adolescents and young adults, and with individuals wanting to overcome barriers to making lifestyle changes.
Jaron believes that every individual is unique in their health needs, and would like to see each person learn what is right for them, rather than trying to promote one size fits all approaches to health.
Outside of work, Jaron is an active individual and is commonly found out mountain biking, water-skiing, or chasing a ball around a hockey field. Jaron played hockey for the New Zealand Masters team in 2016 and 2017, and coaches teams of developing players in Nelson.
