Auckland SLANZA will hold it's 2014 AGM at the Newmarket Paper Plus on Wednesday 18th June. The official start time is 5.30 however you are welcome to arrive straight from school to enjoy browsing their shelves, and purchases can be made. An account can be set up for your school on the night and they are offering 20% discount. One lucky school will win their purchases made that night up to the value of $500. There will also be nibbles and drinks, a guest author, and two publishers speaking. The AGM is expected to be short! We have a strong committee but will always welcome another volunteer.
