Dear Archery NZ members and friends,
It is with deep regret that Archery NZ announces the resignation of Lisa Walker from the board of Archery NZ and as General Manager of the organisation. Lisa will remain as a member of the High Performance Subcommittee which will ensure her extensive knowledge of performance at the highest level in our sport remains available to us all.
Lisa has provided exemplary service to our sport in the position of General Manager and has been a tower of strength to the board and to myself since her election at the AGM in early 2020. It’s impossible to express how much Lisa has contributed to the governance and management of our sport especially in the areas of stakeholder relationships, efficiency and professionalism. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Lisa and can vouch for her tireless work on behalf of members, her kindness and her vision for the sport, a contribution that far exceeds the hours for which she has been paid. I sincerely hope this means that Lisa, who proudly wears ‘the fern’, will be able to spend more time on her shooting and retain the joy that this gives her. We wish Lisa and her family all the very best for her future and look forward to seeing her on the line very, very soon. Thank you, Lisa.
The board will announce plans for a smooth transition over the next 24 hours and, until then, could members wishing to contact the organisation with administration queries please email [email protected] and for all other matters myself at [email protected].
Nāku noa, nā,
