Report from Water Safety NZ AGM, and YNZ AGM 2010

The Water Safety NZ AGM was held in Wellington on Tuesday 19th (Wellington) and I managed to get along to most of it. The YNZ AGM was held on October 2nd which I did not attend (Auckland). Reports from WNZ to both these AGMs are attached.

After the main business at the WSNZ meeting there were some interesting presentations.
Surf Lifesaving NZ are restructuring to make them more responsive to their members, the key move has been to remove the 'regional' layer and liaise directly with the clubs.
Coastguard have launched a new web site and demonstrated one of their new online learning modules ( example )
WSNZ and Plunket have launched an innovative programme of safety around under 5 year olds which includes a non-slip bath mat with a safety message - it will be interesting to see the results of this programme.

WNZ will be talking to WSNZ soon about our own safety promotion scheme (some details in attached report)

Any comments, feedback etc. contact Bruce
