As I write this, another successful AGM and conference has just finished. It was great to see the enthusiasm and dedication of the delegates - we belong to a great organisation and have a genuine desire to work for our communities.
I look forward to the next year as your President and to continue working for the benefit of all brigades and their members.
The Waterway Challenges are now underway and teams will be honing their skills and improving times in preparation for the regionals and nationals in Carterton in February. Having participated as a competitor for many years, I know the huge benefits of these challenges, including skill-building and camaraderie. I would encourage any brigade that does not have a team to strongly promote these events to their members.
My wife, Lyn, and I wish all our members, staff and their families an enjoyable festive season and a prosperous 2011.
Ian Lindsay, President
