Are you willing and able to steer the direction of Health Promotion in Aotearoa? If so, HPF has got governance roles for you! There will be four vacancies on the HPF board at the Annual General Meeting on November 12, for two Māori, one Pacific and one Asian member. And this year, voting for these key governance roles will be made all that much easier as for the first time HPF will be holding the AGM online. Nominations must be sent out and signed by 12 midday, October 22 so get those forms, which have been sent out along with the AGM notice and proxy form, sent in! So be sure to pen in the date for the AGM which will be held from 2 to 3pm, and click on the Zoom links, which have been sent out to HPF members. HPF’s Executive Director Sione Tu’itahi says holding the meeting online will boost participation in the AGM and make it more accessible to members around the country. Mr Tu’itahi says it has been a challenging year with COVID-19 but this has offered many opportunities for HPF to look at new ways to engage with members and the community and  to deliver services and training for your continued professional development. These included online forums launched during the lockdown and a series of interactive webinars, which are now continuing on a monthly basis.
