This is to advise you there will a meeting of the Aotearoa -NZ Division of the Australasia Society for Intellectual Disability (Ltd) at 3.00 pm on Wednesday 1st November.  All members of the division are cordially invited to attend.

The meeting will consist of a brief report of ASID activities in both Australia and NZ from Debbie Espiner,  Chairperson of the  Aotearoa -NZ Division. This will be followed by a presentation by Dr Brigit Mirfin-Veitch, Director of the Donald Beasley Institute looking at what we can learn from the recently released HRC report  “Institutions are places of abuse”: The experiences of disabled children and adults in State care.

Our constitution requires that we call for nominations for any vacant committee positions and for any directorship vacancies on the Australasian Board at this meeting . Three current committee members have reached the end of their three year term. They are able to stand for re-election.  One NZ-Aotearoa Director has reached the end of their three year term on the ASID Board and is not seeking re-election. Accordingly nominations are sought for the following:

  • Three Divisional (3) committee members
  • One Director (1) position on the Australasian Board of ASID Ltd.

All positions are for a three year term. An election will be held if more valid nominations are received than there are positions available.   Nomination forms are included in the link below and need to be returned by 5.00pm 30 October 2017 by either PDF or mailed to the address included on the form.

If you are not able to attend the meeting you are able to appoint a proxy representative authorised to attend and vote at the Divisional meeting on your behalf. (Form attached in the link below). These should also be returned by 5.00pm Monday, 30 October 2017.
