Annual General Meeting Wednesday 26th June
Please make a note in your diary to attend our AGM at The Learning Centre on Wednesday 26th June at 1.30pm.
We are very privileged to have Grant Sidaway, the Executive Director of SeniorNet Inc as our Guest Speaker. Grant is retiring at the end of this year so this is probably your last chance to hear him speak.
New Executive Committee Members
We are looking for several new people to join the Executive Committee this year.
This is a very rewarding role working with a motivated and supportive group of people. If you would like to help steer SeniorNet Kapiti, please ask a friend (member) to nominate you. An Online Nomination form is available for you to use on our website if you click here
Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by the tragic events in Christchurch.
At SeniorNet Kapiti, we have a very special new member. His name is Yates, he has his own membership card and he’s the guide dog for Elizabeth East. Elizabeth is visually impaired and she regularly updates us on IT developments for the visually impaired. Yates now attends meetings with Elizabeth and listens attentively to our discussions!
Reminder: When Yates is wearing his walking harness, please don’t engage with him – he’s busy working!
2nd Reminder: If you want to discuss anything with Yates, please ask Elizabeth for permission first… especially if it involves food!!! Continue reading
