Our traditional Shipwreck Auction and Fish 'n' Chip tea will be held on the evening of Thursday 6 May and following on from the popularity of our trip to Port Chalmers last year we are planning another excursion this year for Friday evening. We will also be holding our 'Women in Industry' breakfast on Friday morning and our friends from Port Nelson Fishermen's Association have something different planned for this event. We will also have our annual sponsored Partner Programme during the day on Friday.

We are setting up our website so that members can register and pay for the Conference and AGM on line. This facility will be available to members who have log-in username and passwords by the begining of March 2010. If you do not have a username and password then please contact Pete Dawson on pete@fishcon.net and he will issue you with a temporary password to enable you to access the site and change your password to one of your own choice.

We have a great range of topics and speakers in our conference programme and we are confident that this year will be as successful as last year was. We have also arranged for a FISHSAFE Workshop to precede the Conference on Wednesday 5 May 2010. Please let Pete Dawson know if you wish to participate in this FREE workshop.
