Kia ora Koutou,
 

We've churned through the last of the summer public holidays so it's time to focus on the mahi and set some priorities for the new year. On that note, I am looking forward to our first network meeting of 2020 which is taking place next week: Inter-Agency network meeting, Tuesday 18 February, 10am-12pm in the Opanuku Room, Corban Estate Arts Centre, Henderson. For this month's meeting I'm excited to be hosting a presentation from Gemma Byford from the Waitemat? Community Law Centre, and it'll also be a great opportunity to catch-up and plan for the year ahead. Our network meetings are open to everyone - I would love to see you there!
