BPW Member on Board !
Barbara had already served two terms as an elected member of the DHB and was re elected for a further term in October.
She was contacted by Health Minister Ryall’s office and asked if she would consider accepting the appointment. As it really came out of left field Barbara requested that she be allowed to sleep on it but decided that it really would be an opportunity to expand her skills and so accepted.
From there her name had to go forward to Parliament for ratification, before the appointment was made.
BPW NZ congratulates Barbara and wishes her well in this key position.
