The April event was an all-round success, and we are planning to follow up with a similar event
in June. We are aiming to have two presentations for the ‘bigger and better’ July event; a
headline presentation on any significant topic related to the water industry, and a presentation of
specific relevance to young professionals.
Over the past few months the Board of Water New Zealand has been working on the development of a new strategic direction for the Association. While much of what we do will remain unchanged, there will be a change of emphasis going forward. There have also been some staffing changes at Water New Zealand, with some staff leaving and new staff to be recruited in the coming months.
This is to let you know that some further information has been published on the Ministry of Health website today in relation to the proposed legislative changes to allow district health boards rather than local authorities to decide which community water supplies are to be fluoridated in their areas.
