First of all I would like to say how sorry I was to hear about the death of our Patron Lady Beattie who I met when she attended the Whangarei Conference in 2009.  It was a real pleasure to have her with us and easy to entertain. She will be sadly missed by her family.
As this is probably going to be my last conference as your Records Officer I would like to thank all those who have helped me in some way over the past 13 years and wish whoever takes over all the best in the coming year as it can be quite a thankless job at times especially when people question decisions that you have made. God Guard Thee Dawn.

Queried how many members in the Command as Gold Pnr Ray Hammond had asked last year and this year’s balance sheets make it no clearer.
Moved by Captain Baker/Pnr Ann Sheary “That there be more transparency shown in the balance sheets.” Carried
The charges to paid out of interest for all of the Troop/Squadron funds being held in trust are to be allocated to those Troops or Squadrons.
Major Yearbury spoke on B Squadron money this was to show in future a balance of $663.00 less the expenses of capitations each year as a small income and Expenditure account.
T Troop funds should not be showing as a separate item as it was to go straight into General funds when the account was closed and agreed upon by the members of T Troop and NZHQ. Half went to general funds and the other half was paid out to a charity of the Troop’s choice.

Moved Captain Val Baker/RSM Ross Vaile "That NZHQ is to establish the rules for the repurposed medals"

The second part of the letter received from N Squadron: Is to consider changing the conferences to every 2 years.   It was the general feelings of the members that to change either the time of year or to every two years would start a downward trend for the Command.  There would also need to be a constitution change.
Moved Pnr Ann Sheary/Captain Val Baker "To stay as it is with conferences every year."  Carried

National Park Monument:
Captain Baker spoke that an offer had been made to clean the monument by the National Park Fire brigade; Lt Bowater was also known to the brigade and would work in with them. NZHQ to provide materials.

Sgt Bracey spoke on the information in the journals, and that comments of a non positive manner in the journal need to cease.

Lieut Robin Cawte asked about the uniform that belonged to the late Gold Pnr Ray Hammond.  The family had handed these back to stores for re-distribution, it was in fact a jacket that the QM stores had already given to Ray only one year beforehand, the Mess Jacket Ray had himself handed in at Taupo, the medals are being held by the family.  Ray had also sent a lot of papers and materials to Captain Baker for archives only one month before his death. It was understood that Ray's death was a great loss to C Troop as it was to the entire Command.

Discussion took place on the use of some of Z Troops funds which has now been transferred into General Funds
Moved Sgt Clive Bracey/Pnr Ann Sheary. "That some of Z Troops funds which are in general funds be used for the purchase of new uniforms as and when required."

SSgt Barry Coker asked that the members of the Command show their appreciation for all the work Peter Hamilton had done in transporting members to and from venues and their hotels.

Major Yearbury asked of Pnr Ann Sheary why the G Squadron account had not been closed. Captain Baker replied as she had instructed Pnr Sheary not to, until after the elections of conference, as the constitution on the unit needed to be sorted out first to fix an error that had been made by some of the NZ Staff members without the knowledge of others. Once this was completed the account would be closed accordingly.

Introduction of O Troop Members:
Each of those new members from O Troop who had not attended a conference before stood and introduced themselves to the Command.
Beattie Family:

Major Yearbury has a sympathy card to send to the family, however as SSgt Coker had sent out messages from the Command and from J Troop it was felt that a card was not necessary.
