Postponement of one-day event and extension of SJV Award voting

The SFFANZ Board has issued the following statement…
——–
The SFFANZ board has decided to extend voting in this year’s Sir Julius Vogel Awards until June 30 as insufficient votes have been received to date. If there are still insufficient votes received at that time, no awards will be presented this year. The board feels such action is necessary to protect the value and prestige of the awards.

The one-day event will also be moved to allow for the extra voting time. The registrations for this event had also been lackluster, so it’s hoped the new date will attract more people to attend. We expect, at this stage, that this will be in mid-July, pending confirmation with the venue.

The voting paper and voter packet will be available again shortly on the sffanz website http://www.sffanz.nz. The one-day form will also be shortly updated to reflect the new date once we’ve spoken with the hotel.

For those who have already cast their vote, please note we will continue to hold those safe until the extended voting period closes.

We apologise to those who may already have made travel plans for June 25, however, we feel this action is necessary.

If you need the voting links, you can find them all in this earlier post.
