It’s been another busy year and the Board and I have begun mapping out the necessary approach to our work for 2024. As we begin to wrap up the year for 2023 I encourage members to stay in touch with Branches and Networks for information that comes from National Office. Alternatively, let me know if you wish to directly receive information that comes out. You can contact me via 0800 222 694 number or email Phone calls and emails will be passed along to me for my attention.

Our National Office closes at noon on Thursday 21 December 2023. We reopen on Wednesday 17 January 2024. In between times and although I am on annual leave, I remain available as always for emergency situations.

Last but not least to our members, supporters, stakeholders and readers, from the Board and staff of Blind Citizens NZ, all the very best for Christmas and the New Year and above all else, stay safe. We look forward to engaging and | or working with you in 2024
