Congratulations, we look forward to celebrating with you in the coming months.

It was great to be a part of the Local Committee Chair Day in Wellington earlier this month. It was great to bring together 15 chairs from all over New Zealand to plan, including from our region Alice Norton – Waikato, Nicky Old – Bay of Plenty, Michelle Hall – Gisborne, Lisa Hardie – Hawke's Bay and Liz Maddox-Strong – Taranaki.

The Central North Island team has had a busy start to 2020. We kicked things off in Tauranga with the Bay of Plenty Tikanga Maori for Business Professionals event on 12 February. This series is proving extremely popular as it was another sell-out with just over 40 of our members joining us. We also held this session in Hawke's Bay and Taranaki, welcoming another 70 members.

We also held our first Waikato Women in Work event for the year – Balance and Nutrition for Professional Women – on 13 February. We hosted 45 members in the room and welcomed over 100 via webcast.

The Annual Bay of Plenty Quiz was held in Rotorua on 19 February when nine teams competed for the trophy. Congratulations to First-Deloitted for taking out this year's honours with Save the Ales second and Cunning Stunts third.
