OWLS 2015 AGM: 17 February 2015

The OWLS Annual General Meeting was held on Tuesday, 17 February 2015 at Ombrellos Bar and Restaurant. The meeting was well supported, with a good turnout of members. The AGM began with members catching up with each other over a friendly drink and some nibbles, before the business part of the evening began. Firstly, the 2015 Committee was established. We have a full OWLS Committee again this year, with two new committee members, Catey Boyce and Anne McLeod, joining the Committee. Rachel Brooking and Bridget Irving have stepped off the Committee this year after many years and we thank them for their service. As well as general business matters, discussions were also held about the upcoming 30th anniversary of OWLS in 2016 and possibility of an archiving/history project and/or celebrations to mark that occasion. Discussions were also had about how best to display Marion Thompson’s tea set, which has been kindly gifted to OWLS by Sally McMillan. After the formal part of the meeting was concluded most of the members stayed on for a delicious dinner, during which OWLS Committee member Alison Douglass presented a very engaging talk on the prestigious New Zealand Law Foundation International Research Fellowship she has been awarded and the research she intends to carry out on the important issue of medical consent and capacity in New Zealand. This project will involve national and international research at the highest level and we wish Alison all the very best in her endeavours. All in all the AGM was a very successful and enjoyable event. IMG_5895 IMG_5898 IMG_5904 IMG_5913
