Each of the six candidates standing for election to the Blind Foundation’s Board of Directors General Seats of which there are two this year (these candidates are elected by governing members), agreed to participate in a “meet the candidates” session, hosted by Blind Citizens NZ the morning of Sunday 9 October, during our AGM and Conference. In alphabetic order, the six candidates and the means by which they participated are: Garth Clarricoats (phone); Clive Lansink, Pam MacNeill (in person); Peter Ruddenklau (phone); Judy Small (in person); Allan Webster (phone).

Questions posed by attendees, and those joining Blind Citizens NZ courtesy of Jonathan Mosen and MushroomFM’s live stream of our proceedings, were put to candidates.
