    AAPNZ Wellington Group congratulates Jenny Porter as she takes up the role of Central Regional Leader for the 2020-21 term. 

    Jenny takes up this role effective immediately. Our group is delighted that the Central Region groups have excellent representation on NET with Jenny's election into the role. We know that she is dedicated to the success of AAPNZ, and is ready to build on the work undertaken by outgoing Central Regional Leader, Dianne Parker. 

    Our group also takes this opportunity to thank Dianne for her years of dedication to AAPNZ. Dianne served as Group President of the Wellington Group from 2015-18, and went on to serve on NET as Central Regional Leader for the 2019-20 term. 

    AAPNZ Wellington is fortunate to have leaders such as Dianne and Jenny among our members. 

    We look forward to working closely with Jenny in her new role over the coming year.

    Are you still working from home?
    Or want to ensure that you take time for your morning cuppa break?

    The Wednesday morning coffee catch-ups are still taking place. I know from joining in, it's been great to chat along with AAPNZ peers from around the country.

    It's informal, friendly, and whether you can pop in for 10 minutes, or the full time, it's worthwhile.
