Please test for HIV and other STIs before having sex outside your bubbles in level 2. We can break the chain of transmission for more than one epidemic with this lockdown.
The NZAF Trust Board is proud to announce that it has resolved to approve an amended version of the NZAF Trust deed.
The new deed expands the purposes of the NZAF to include preventing the transmission of STIs and promoting and supporting the physical and mental health and wellbeing of our core communities. It also provides for all new Trustees to be appointed by existing Trustees according to specific criteria set out in the deed, and simplifies the process for Trustees to amend the Trust Deed in future, should the need arise. These changes will provide a firm foundation for the NZAF to flourish now and into the future.
A draft version of the amended deed was endorsed by a majority of members present and voting at the NZAF AGM on 28 November 2020. Following the 2020 AGM, at a meeting convened on 8 December 2020, the Board resolved unanimously to approve a final version of the amended deed. The approved deed contained only minor amendments from the version endorsed by members at the 2020 AGM, mostly of a typographical or formatting nature.
The approved deed was subsequently signed by each of the Trustees, with the process completed on 27 March 2021. A copy of the new deed as signed by the Trustees is available below.
The new deed has now been submitted to the Registrar of Companies and Department of Internal Affairs Charities Services for formal registration.
