Our hard working President, Marianne Harper was honoured with an invite to attend a reception at Buckingham Palace on 9 June, hosted by the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall to celebrate the Commonwealth diaspora in the UK. She was one of a group of 10 kiwis present who represented a range of NZ community groups. Marianne was delighted to be selected to meet the Duchess, along with other representatives of various women’s groups.
NZWA members are extremely proud of Marianne and congratulate her on her recent attendance to Buckingham Palace. She has guided the NZWA successfully through the Covid pandemic and we are grateful in her abilities to recognise where changes are needed for our long term future.
