Putting the Past Behind Us

An account of governance reform within the Blind Foundation from 1995 to 2003

Compiled and edited from records of the time by Geraldine Glanville

These were the years that saw the Foundation reform itself from a body governed by its own Act of Parliament to one that would come to recognise the rights of its members to self-determination by electing its board and determining its future direction. This account traces the history of this protracted and often acrimonious process that, were it not for the tenacity and resolve displayed by Blind Citizens NZ and its members, may have resulted in a totally different outcome.
