2016 Charities Services Annual Meeting

Around 120 people attended our Annual Meeting held in Christchurch on 14 November 2016. It was a great turn out given the unrest and disruption caused by the earthquakes very early that morning.

Community and Voluntary Sector Minister Jo Goodhew(external link), Charities Registration Board Chairman Roger Holmes Miller, our General Manager Lesa Kalapu, and other Charities Services staff spoke on a range of topics, including how the Board operates, what we're seeing with the new reporting standards, and registration and compliance issues. There was also a question and answer session where members of the Charities Services team responded to questions from charities.
