Bad weather generates small turnout at southern cross AGM

Monday, 10 December 2012 by Aimee Bourke

The stormy weather that hit Auckland last Thursday afternoon impacted the turnout at Southern Cross Medical Care Society’s 51st Annual General Meeting (AGM) held at Ellerslie that night (6th December).

Around 100 members attended the meeting, the smallest turnout in over a decade.

The AGM saw existing Directors Dr Douglas Baird and Carole Durbin re-elected to the Southern Cross Board, while Chairman Graeme Hawkins was also re-appointed as a Trustee.

A special resolution was passed to amend the rules of the Southern Cross Medical Care Society to ensure these align with the requirements of the Insurance (Prudential Supervision) Act 2010.
