The Annual General Meeting
Thursday 3rd March from 4.00 pm until 6.00 pm.

We will be holding the meeting by Zoom link and at the Millennium Hotel, Rotorua simultaneously. You are welcome to choose the way you would like to attend the meeting. Hopefully, both mediums will provide the opportunity for members to effectively participate in the activities of the Society.

Deniz Ozkundakci - the newly appointed Lakes Chair at Waikato University will present on Lake Research and it impact on the Rotorua Lakes.

This is a wonderful opportunity to welcome Deniz to the society and get further insights into the next stage of Lake Research required to maintain and continue our restoration journey for the Lakes.

For people attending the AGM in person at the Millennium Hotel - light refreshments will be available after the meeting.

Agenda Item 6: Election of Officers and Executive Committee

Since members can attend the meeting either in person or via Zoom, it is going to be difficult to hold elections.

Currently the Society has been advised of the following nominations:

John Gifford (Chair)

Lesley Fittness (Secretary)

Marcel van Leeuwen (Treasurer)

Stuart Corson (Committee Member)

Steward Edward (Committee Member)

Ken Kennedy (Committee Member)

Mark Oliver (Committee Member)

Craig Street (Committee Member)

We would welcome another one or two nominations from members. If you are interested in joining the Executive Committee please contact John (021853659) before the 1st March 2022.

Members leaving the committee:

We have had several Executive Committee members leave the committee during the year and others who will not be seeking re-election for 2022.

Don Atkinson who has been very active for the Society over many years has decided to reduce his direct participation on the Executive Committee. Don has done a tremendous job for the Society and been very active in many of the it's key initiatives in particular the development of the rules around PC10 and has been an incredible advocate for Lake Rotoiti. The Committee extends to Don a huge thank you for all his input and we know that Don's interest in the health of the Lakes will continue. Don has indicated that he would still like to contribute to the Symposium - so we are not loosing him entirely.

Colin Jackson is also not seeking election to the committee for 2022. Colin has represented issues for Lake Okareka and has made a excellent contribution to the workings of the Society. In particular, work related to introducing new rules for reducing pest incursions into the lakes via the self certification for boat operators and in assisting with our Symposia. Colin's contribution will be missed. We wish him well for the future and with the many other activities that he is involved with.

Other Committee changes through the year included:

1. The resignation of Jennifer Rothwell (Committee Member)

2. The resignation of Libby Fletcher (Committee Member)

3. The resignation of Richard Noke (Committee Member)

We have greatly appreciated the contribution that these committee members made to the activities of the Society and also wish them well for the future.

We look forward to seeing you at the LWQS AGM on the 3 March 2022 at 4.00 pm.
