Update from Archery NZ Board

Update from Archery NZ Board

26 June, 2020

Regretfully Archery NZ received the resignations of Board Chair, Elizabeth Elkins and Board Member, Chris Wilson.  Their individual work schedules have meant that they are unable to continue.  We would like to thank both Elizabeth and Chris for their outstanding contribution that they have given to Archery NZ and wish them well in the future.  Lexie Matheson as Deputy Chair is acting Chair until further notice.

We also regretfully advise the resignation of our General Manager, Mike Thompson due to a sudden and unexpected change in his family situation.  We would like to thank Mike for his work with us and wish him and his family all the best as they work through this difficult time.

A group of volunteers have stepped in to enable Mike’s immediate release from his role and to ensure Archery NZ business will continue as normal.  Lisa Walker will be acting as an Interim Operations Manager, overseeing daily operations.  Andrew Russell will be taking over Event Management and will be providing an update on Indoor Nationals and other events very soon.

If you would like to contribute to the work Archery NZ is doing, we welcome nominations for the board and these can be emailed to [email protected]

Thank you for those that have reached out to support our team

Lexie, Sier, Tracy, Helen & Lisa
