Windsurfing NZ Notice of Annual General Meeting 2017

Fri 3 Feb 2017
Dunedin

The WNZ AGM is traditionally held at and during the National Slalom event each year. Rather than scheduling a specific time and place it has been found easier to schedule it into the race schedule as conditions permit so it does not conflict or interfere with racing. If you have any matters you would like to raise at the AGM please notify Bruce Spedding.

Minutes and other docs from 2016 AGM are available here http://www.windsurfingnz.org/content/agm-minutes-2016
