The Muscular Dystrophy Association of New Zealand (MDA) held their Annual General Meeting in Hamilton on Friday night at the Distinction Hotel.
Ken Green, a charted accounted, was selected as the new chairperson for National Council and brings with him a lot of experience within the organisation already. Green has been a part of the Council for just over a year and is also the head of the MDA’s Sub Finance committee.
Trevor Jenkin, a long time advocate and member of the MDA’s Northern committee was selected as vice chairperson on National Council.
Both men were selected unopposed.
An array of speakers were on hand to share their story following the official ceremonies at the AGM. Nic Brocklebank, the ambassador for MDA New Zealand, and Dr Alice Theodom, the lead researcher on Muscular Dystrophy prevention were the two stand outs.
Other names of interest including special guest Dr Larry Stern from the USA and Dr Richard Roxburgh also spoke on the night.
