Chair report on Council Face to Face 24 / 25 June

Last weekend the new PiNZ Council had our first proper face to face meeting. The venue was the Ecomatters building in New Lyn, which was a great place to meet, with plenty of space, wifi, kitchen etc. They even have an outdoor pizza oven which we made good use of on Saturday night. Thanks to Guenther for organising such an excellent space for us.....
