Attention SLANZA Central members
The 2015 SLANZA Central AGM will be held at 10am on Saturday 29th August, at Palmerston North Intermediate School in Palmerston North, during the SLANZA PD day.
Please send any apologies for the AGM to firstname.lastname@example.org before Friday 28th August.
SLANZA Central region committee wants to be able to do more for and reach a greater number of people in our region - but we need help. Given our large geographic area it is difficult for us to organise events throughout the region and reach our entire membership. We think you could help solve this problem for us. We would like you to become a committee member.

Being on the committee is easier than you might think:

Central regions Term 2 event was a Publishers evening kindly hosted once again by Paper Plus Palmerston North. This was held on Thursday 18th June. Attendees got the opportunity to network, shop for books and listen to the two publisher’s representatives, who came up from Wellington for the event, discuss all things trending, new and upcoming in the book industry. Attendees also went home with a number of free books each.
Our Term 1 PD day - Creative Commons & Referencing 101 - was held on Wednesday 1st April after school, with the intention that teaching staff and library staff would be able to attend. Thank you to Michelle at Tamatea High for kindly hosting this event. We were able to get Matt McGregor of Creative Commons to include Napier in their countrywide CC Roadshow. This had a school-based focus, with special note on issues particular to school libraries.
There were 3 presentations:
