For those who don’t know us – Community Networks Aotearoa (CNA) is the umbrella organisation for local community networks throughout Aotearoa New Zealand. Our goal is to empower and strengthen the community sector by supporting community networks across Aotearoa. Here’s a quick update on what we’ve been up to.
First up I want to welcome Sarah Doherty to CNA. Lisa Woods, who has been part of our team for the last year has gone on maternity leave, and we are lucky to have Sarah join us to take over Lisa’s role. Sarah has vast experience working in both the community sector and government.
In June I attended the Equality Network Hui, the purpose of the day was to hear and collect views on a strategy for the network, especially as we head into an election year. I’m on the network’s Steering Group so I’ll be involved in helping to pull it all together and will keep you updated as this work progresses.
Lastly, before signing off remember to register for our conference! The joint conference of Community Networks Aotearoa and NZ Council of Christian Social Services is on the 27th and 28th August in Wellington. The theme this year is Tātou tātou e (all of us together): The value of relationships in building wellbeing. For more information go to: https://tatoutatoue.nz/
