Air NZ boss to talk

Guest speaker at Shap­ing Our Fu­ture an­nual gen­eral meet­ing

Central Otago Mirror - - WHAT’S ON -

Big top­ics will be raised at the Shap­ing our Fu­ture an­nual gen­eral meet­ing, with the Air New Zealand boss as guest speaker at the Queen­stown Me­mo­rial Cen­tre on Novem­ber 21.

The air­line’s chief ex­ec­u­tive, Christopher Luxon, will speak about the lo­cal tourism in­fra­struc­ture as well as the com­pany’s per­for­mance strat­egy.

Shap­ing our Fu­ture ex­ec­u­tive Anita Golden said Luxon would spark a few ma­jor dis­cus­sions in the com­mu­nity.

‘‘It’s very top­i­cal at the mo­ment. Air New Zealand is very much in­volved in Queen­stown, so peo­ple would be in­ter­ested in what he’s got to say.’’

Dur­ing the meet­ing the Queen­stown trans­port re­port and Glenorchy com­mu­nity re­port will also be an­a­lysed.

Mem­bers and non-mem­bers are wel­come to join the an­nual meet­ing on Mon­day, which will in­volve vot­ing for the steer­ing group mem­bers.

‘‘It’s ex­cit­ing times to be in­volved,’’ Golden said.

Four mem­bers stood down this year, in­clud­ing Jim Boult, who has now a dif­fer­ent job as Queen­stown Lakes Mayor.

‘‘They are all fan­tas­tic. They are busy peo­ple, but they have real in­ter­est and real pas­sion in this area mov­ing for­ward,’’ Golden said.

The votes for steer­ing group nom­i­na­tions close at 5pm on Novem­ber 16, and only reg­is­tered mem­bers can vote.

Shap­ing our Fu­ture is a com­mu­nity group that anal­y­ses big is­sues and cre­ates com­mu­nity ac­tion in the Queen­stown Lakes District. Sho­tover Coun­try Mu­sic Club Con­cert:
