AGM news: New Hoe Tonga Executive

At the AGM on 9 November 2009 new executive officers were voted in. The new executive officers are as follows

  • President: Jörn Scherzer
  • Vice-President: Chris Fox
  • Treasurer: Averill Paenga
  • Secretary: Mere Elkington
  • Hoe Tonga representative at NKOA: Samantha Tamanui

Please welcome and support them in their roles.

Many many thanks for the great work and the achievements of the outgoing executive officers: Katie Townsend (former president) and Raukawa Comerford (former secretary). We thank them for all they have given to the sport of Waka Ama within our region.

Note that Averill Paenga has kindly agreed to continue in the role of Treasurer until a replacement can be found. We would like to call on all paddlers and supporters, if you are interested in taking up this role please contact any of the executive officers.

Ideally we are looking for somebody with some financial and/or accounting skills. This could include somebody who is retired and who is looking for a rewarding role in moving Waka Ama in the Hoe Tonga region forward.
