The Treasurer, John Laurie, presented his report of the accounts for the year ending 30th June 2005. The Treasurer’s report (Peter Kennedy  moved, Paul Sutherland seconded) was received and approved by the meeting.


3. Convenor’s report


The outgoing convenor, Brian Flaherty, was unable to attend. His report was submitted in writing and received by the meeting.


4. 2004/05 committee


Nominations were called for, following which it was moved from the chair, and approved by the meeting, that the following be appointed to the committee:

  • Auckland: John Laurie, Bob Pearson – both University of Auckland
  • Wellington: Brenda Chawner (VUW – School of Information Studies), Daphne Dashfield (National Library)

John continues to hold the office of treasurer.


In the absence of nominations for convenor, Peter Kennedy     agreed to take on that role in the interim.


5. Other business


Issues discussed, and requiring attention by the incoming committee were:

  • VALA 2006 sponsorship
  • Membership which seems to be declining (perhaps as there is little publicity given the SIGs by LIANZA)
  • Road-show of the main centres (Brian Flaherty and Peter Kennedy    )
  • Small numbers attending the last two AGMs of ITSIG
