I know many of our members will be concerned for the safety of our Christchurch colleagues and friends. I can let you know that I have made contact with all our Christchurch-based members and they are all safe as of today, Feb 23 2011.
After our recent successful AAPO conference in this beautiful city, I have strong fond memories of my time there, in particular the people. At this stage I have not heard news about any of the Christchurch-based speakers, but am endeavouring to make contact.
Please keep the residents of Christchurch in your thoughts and prayers.
