Staffing changes on the PCC

Regretfully, 2 year incumbent PCC member, Cameron Kennedy has tendered his resignation to me from the PCC. Cameron needs the time to concentrate on becoming a commercial helicopter pilot.

We accept Cameron's resignation and thank him wholeheartedly for all the work that he has put into the PCC over the past two years.

After only limited coercion, Wayne Rohrs has agreed to join the PCC and the NZHGPA Executive have endorsed this. 

We genuinely welcome what Wayne can bring to us, not least his exceptional IT skills which are a much sought after commodity.

The other two members of the PCC: Johnny Hopper and Tim Brown, remain on the committee.

Thanks, Cameron, and welcome, Wayne.
