"As President of SAA(NZ) it is a genuine pleasure for me to welcome you to this site and to our organisation. If you are curious about the world around you, if you are critical of current arrangements and if you are committed to improving the world, you have come to the right place. I encourage you to become a member and play an active part in the association."
