Change ahead for NZSTA

--

For the first time in its 27 years the NZSTA Board has announced the appointment of a new CEO. Nick Inskip has considerable experience in governance and working with boards on developing and executing strategy, and implementing change. He also has strong financial literacy skills.

Originally from Australia and with a background in mechanical engineering and quality assurance, Nick comes to us from 5 years as CEO with Icon Edge, 3 years as CEO for AJ Parkes & Co and 7 years as General Manager, Industry Development with the Heavy Engineering Research Association where he has had particular responsibilities for maintaining and promoting capabilities of the membership, providing advice on international, tariff and marketing issues of significance to the industry, performing targeted business development initiatives, and developing and maintaining industry development training / seminar programmes.

Nick takes up his new role on 31 January.

NZSTA’s outgoing General Manager Ray Newport retires this week after 27 years with the organisation.

Ray started with NZSTA on its first day, 1 April 1989. Ray has been a steady hand on the tiller, and has navigated the organisation through difficult times to its current strong position. Ray is acknowledged as the architect and driving force behind the strategy of providing a comprehensive range of employment and governance advice free of charge to boards of trustees through NZSTA’s contract with the Ministry of Education.

Ray is looking forward to an active retirement on the lifestyle block he and his wife Alison have bought on the Kapiti coast. Ray’s departure truly marks the end of an era for NZSTA.

ENDS

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.
