Printing and stationery costs have increased due to more mailouts to members. This budget year will also see promotion of NZNO's centenary and more activity by sections and colleges.
The budget was prepared with input from all staff, with Little adjustment from the original budgets submitted, the board was told.

While the budget provided only a small surplus and there were no transfers to reserves, for the first time in many years, it was building up NZNO's internal structures to deliver the level and types of activities members required.
