Next meeting Monday 11 June
'We are fortunate to have as our speaker on Monday 11 June, Roger McDonald, CEO of Panuku Developments, who will talk about Auckland's changes and its future. This will be of maximum interest to everyone.
We all know that Auckland is undergoing huge change at present and is playing catch up on its infrastructure (roads, wastewater, sewage and many others) caused in part by the inattention of past Councils but also by a rise in population growth and demand which few would have predicted.
Faced with the enormity of this, the current Council is turning its mind to redressing the position, and we all know who is going to have to pay for most of it.
Please come and hear something of importance to us and to our successors.
John Collinge
President 2017/2018
Meeting 18 June

Simon O'Connor, MP for Tamaki

Afghanistan and Iraq - a fascinating and fantastic recent encounter.
In 2011, Simon was elected as the Member of Parliament for Tamaki.  Prior to his election, his background included a broad range of experiences from the commercial, public, and voluntary sectors.
Simon was educated at the University of Auckland, and also trained to become a Catholic priest.  Though he completed his training, he did not seek ordination.  Instead, he sought wider involvement in the community to make a practical, hands-on difference.
Raised in Whangarei, Simon came to Auckland in 1994 to begin his university studies.  Apart from his two years working on aide development projects in Fiji and a year spent in the United States, Auckland has remained his home ever since.
Simon is a director on the board of Monarchy New Zealand, a nationwide constitutional lobby group, and is a frequent media commentator on constitutional and monarchical issues in New Zealand.  He has been active within the National Party for many years, holding numerous offices, and was a list candidate in 2008.
