3. Matters Arising:
The three areas of focus for AMANZ were outlined by President, Dawn Sanders.
4. President's Report was presented by Dawn Sanders
The current balance should be $561.48, but due to the delay in acceptance of our constitution, the cheque was returned and the actual balance at 20/1/99 is $636.07.
Full report to be compiled and filed.
To encourage new membership, Arts Access Aotearoa has mailed out 350 AMANZ membership forms. They will also submit these to magazines and provide us with other magazine contacts.
There is also an article appearing in the NZ Doctor magazine.
AMANZ will also follow up contact with the Royal Academy of Dancing in Australia.
An invitation was extended to all at the meeting to distribute forms.
Members' Subscriptions: Reminder notices and notice of last newsletter for those who haven't paid to go out with the newsletter.
Note: New members joining three months before March will have their memberships carried over to the following year.
We would also like to contact the International Association of Dance Medicine and Science.
An e-mail was received from Ruth Highet and we extend official congratulations to her for marriage and baby.
8. Constitution: It was moved that "We agree to the terminology alteration required by the Registrar of Incorporated Societies be made to our Constitution" ie that the words 'winding up' be changed to read 'cessation' (moved Nicky Newton, seconded Deirdre Tarrant).
Sharon Callaghan to make necessary changes to electronic copy of the constitution.
It was suggested that an alteration to Clause 28 (Quorum) be discussed at the next meeting.
9. Strategic Plan:
On 26 April a seminar was presented by Alison Bagnall and was recommended to all vocalists including dance teachers and aerobics instructors.
The seminar on 24 May to be presented by Elizabeth Andrews (UK, author of "Healthy Practise for Musicians") may now require two sessions. AMANZ can only be involved in one. It was suggested this evening be a combined effort with the Sports Medicine Association.
We approached Song Liu about a presentation on Arts Medicine in China. The date suggested was Monday 18 October and has yet to be confirmed.
The members' database will be checked again to identify those willing to present seminars.
Sharon Callaghan to send Dr Peter Walls a copy of the current Newsletter.
Robert Ibell offered to be a central faxing point for media releases and to hold a list of contacts at newspapers etc. The information sent should list each seminar organiser plus Dawn Sanders.
Dawn will copy her media list to Robert also.
AMANZ should publish and distribute their list of seminars before Loretta sends the NEWZATS seminar list to the media.
