HPRS is managed by a committee made up of society members who are elected at the Annual General Meeting. All committee members are volunteers. The duties of the committee are defined in the constitution.

Your Current Committee:

Ebony Combe (Chair), Kiri Lomas (Deputy Chair), Brian Mitchie, Lester de Vere and Nevan Pillay

All committee members have hprs email addresses in the format of [first name]@hprs.co.nz. There is also a centrally managed inbox [email protected] which we encourage all queries to go to first. These will then be passed on the the most appropriate committee member.
