Any new member who has not received a green plastic membership card should contact the Membership Secretary by email to or call me at 382 8296. Cards are ordered from Auckland in batches, so it may take a while before there are sufficient new members for another order to be placed. Your welcome letter will give an indication of the timeframe.

New cards are no longer issued annually as the current green plastic card is automatically updated on renewal of membership.

Average attendance at lectures during the second half of 2018 was 183, with no difference between Tuesdays and Fridays. The lowest average was for August (167), suggesting that some members were away during that month – travelling perhaps? Total numbers ranged from 105 to 271. The highest attendance by far was for Joy Cowley’s lecture The Power of the Story, which also attracted the highest number of visitors – 17. Six lectures attracted 10 or more visitors.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any membership queries.
