Message from the INFINZ Chair
2012 has been another successful year for INFINZ that saw a number of firsts - our membership base passed 700, more than 750 people attended the INFINZ Awards, INFINZ advocacy activities received increased media profile and we launched the INFINZ breakfast series.
The member survey in September confirmed to the Board that we are on the right track in meeting expectations of our membership, but there is appetite for us to do more - particularly in the areas of education and advocacy.
The Board has been developing its response to the survey, to enhance our membership proposition in line with your feedback, and is meeting in February to confirm this and our priorities for the year ahead. We will be updating you on this during Q1 2013.
Any changes in priorities or investment we make on behalf of members won't be a substitute for the key ingredient of INFINZ' success - our achievements will continue to be driven by the passion and expertise of our members and the time they commit to giving back to our industry. There is always plenty members can do to help INFINZ contribute to developing and strengthening the financial and capital markets through getting involved in our advocacy, education and networking activities. Our wide range of current advocacy activities, as outlined in the recent member communication, offer plenty of opportunity for members to pursue their particular areas of interest and expertise - please contact Jim McElwain if there are areas where you would like to get involved.
The INFINZ Board is committed to delivering another year of firsts for INFINZ in 2013 and we look forward to your continuing support in achieving this.
Best wishes for the festive season and the year ahead.
