Keeping in touch with people in Wellington / Taranaki
Next meeting: Thursday 30 March, Palmerston North
We are pleased to announce the first branch meeting of the year will be in Palmerston North. From the asset management perspective it has been a dramatic start to the year, with assets tested and damaged by Cyclone Gabrielle. Our community needs to come together to support our recovery and improve resilience where we can.
