Kia ora koutou,

As the school holidays kick off, for those taking some time off, we hope you're ready for some well-deserved relaxation (if you can call it that!) and family time. Amidst the holiday buzz, we're here to keep you in the loop with the latest updates and offerings.

The Government's cost-cutting plans have dominated the media in recent weeks. To help support you during these challenging times, check out our cost of living hub. We are also working on a complimentary sharing knowledge session to help those navigating a career change, scheduled at 1pm NZT on 9 May. Save the date, and the sign-up link will be in our next newsletter.

Member Satisfaction Survey

The Member Satisfaction Survey for this year was launched in early April. By sharing your feedback, you have the opportunity to win one of six Prezzee gift cards valued at $2,500 each or one of twenty-five Prezzee gift cards valued at $400 each. Alternatively, you could support a charity of your choice with a donation of equal value. The survey closes 10th May and we would love to hear from all members.
