SPCA DE­CI­SION

Central Leader - - FRONT PAGE -

The SPCA voted on June 17 to for­mone na­tional or­gan­i­sa­tion from its cur­rent 45 in­de­pen­dent cen­tres. Del­e­gates voted at the RNZSPCA an­nual gen­eral meet­ing. The move would cre­ate a uni­fied and fu­ture-fo­cused na­tional en­tity af­ter two years of dis­cus­sions and con­sul­ta­tion. Act­ing chief ex­ec­u­tive An­drea Mid­gen said the pre­vi­ous struc­ture was not sus­tain­able or fit-for-pur­pose. Mid­gen said the move to one SPCA was not about cre­at­ing a cen­trally-con­trolled or­gan­i­sa­tion, or clos­ing any SPCA cen­tres.
