Board increases honoraria.

The honoraria for NZNO president and Te Runanga o Aotearoa chair have been increased by $5000 respectively. The president now receives $30,000 and Te Runanga chair $25,000. In its decision last month, NZNO's board of directors agreed the honorarium was not a salary, a reimbursement of expenses or leave without pay. It was simply a payment or koha made in recognition of the two offices.

The board also elected two new vice-presidents: Donna Thomas, a senior staff nurse at Grey Base Hospital; and Nigel Milton, a paediatric nurse from Dunedin Hospital.

NZNO educator Rob Haultain has been appointed NZNO industrial adviser, with a private sector focus. She replaces Cee Payne-Harker, now organising services manager. Haultain has extensive experience in the union movement and is a lawyer who has specialised in employment and worker issues. Payne-Harker described her as "someone who brings a huge commitment and passion to her work with both members and staff': Registered nurse and NZNO delegate Christina Carlyle has been appointed an organiser in Auckland. She has worked in both the district health board and primary health care sectors. She was part of the Auckland DHB multi-employer collective agreement negotiating team.

NZNO's new accountant is Halina Smolski. She brings with her almost ten years' accounting experience. National office administrator Vanessa MacKay left NZNO this month for a position at the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry. *
