A report on the ABM

Thank you to all who attended our ABM on 10 October. And thank you to Ruth Davies for giving us an update on IPEd activities.

Our committee of four was confirmed. Thank you to Jane, Joan and Beverly for staying on. I’ve enjoyed working with you all this past year! Jane will retain her role as newsletter coordinator. Joan will continue to welcome new members and keep the EdANZ information up to date on the IPEd website. Beverly is taking up the advocacy role and will stay on as the branch secretary until we find a replacement. I will continue to manage the branch budget and Facebook page, and represent EdANZ in IPEd-wide meetings.

If you’d like to join the committee and take over as secretary or social media coordinator, get in touch! We’d love to hear from you:

Thank you,

Deborah Shaw, EdANZ budget officer

Giveaway: Everything I Know About Books

Odessa Owens and Theresa Crewdson of Whitireia have kindly given us a copy of Everything I know about books to give away.

We’re opening the giveaway to all of our EdANZ members. To enter, just email us at and say kia ora!
