Following the recent meeting of the RNZFB Board on 30 April, the board received from Rick Hoskin his resignation.

While Rick’s recent term on the Board was only a few months, as is customary he contributed much material for the Board.  After reflection Rick has decided to channel his energies into other interests.  We thank Rick for his contribution to the RNZFB Board and wish him well in his future endeavours.

As a result of the noted resignation, the next highest polling candidate on the most recent election list is Anne-Marie Taggart from Wellington.  I have spoken with her and she is very enthusiastic about becoming a RNZFB Director effective 16 May.  I trust you join me in welcoming Anne-Marie to the RNZFB Board.
