Dan Shirley resigned just prior to our October Early on, the Board adopted a new strategic meeting. Dan expressed regret that he plan and were called upon to make a couldn’t fulfil his two year term and referred decision about whether we upheld the to overseas travel commitments as the previous board’s decision to cancel the 2012 reason for his on-going unavailability for NZ Open. Despite pressure from our meetings. We were benefiting greatly from international body to go ahead, we felt the Dan’s high performance experience and he financial risks to the organisation were will be missed. significant and the need to free our Chief Executive’s time from this project meant we should stick to our guns and not go ahead. Later on in the year we were able to negotiate and sign an agreement with Match Point Events Ltd. to run the tournament for 4 years with no financial risk to Badminton NZ. If anyone can pull this off and grow the event, we know Julie can.

Despite the comings and goings, the Board have worked well together with everyone contributing where they could and working well in a spirit of unity and rigorous debate on the issues at hand.

The year has had its share of challenges. Being an Olympic year we were hopeful that

As I write I look forward to attending the 50th

Anniversary celebration of North Harbour Badminton Association on November 10th. What a great achievement and what a great contribution that Association has made to badminton in New Zealand over the years.

I would like to take this opportunity to express appreciation to our Chief Executive, Nicki Martin, for her efforts this year. Leading a nation of passionate Badminton people can be a bit like herding cats at times. It is a fine line trying to keep people happy but at the same time making necessary decisions for the progress of the game that sometimes are not too popular. I appreciate the candour, diplomacy and professionalism she brings to our sport.

In conclusion I would like to thank all the Oliver people who have served our game in a multitude of ways, whether in their Association teaching kids to play, volunteering at some event, and offering skill in a committee of their Association or of Badminton NZ. Collectively as we unite together for a bigger purpose than ourselves we will see our sport flourish and thrive.

Yours sincerely

After much deliberation around the operational side of the implementation, it was decided by the High Performance Committee to initially only focus on the implementation of the U13 and U15 programme in 2012 before adding the U17 age group in 2013 and U19 in 2014/2015.
