Leading light resigns from the Cancer Society of New Zealand

The Cancer Society of New Zealand advises with great regret that their Chief Executive, Dalton Kelly, has resigned his position effective 31 July 2014.

Mr Kelly has been a well-respected and well-regarded leader of the Cancer Society for over eight years. His commitment to the Society’s vision and mission has been a focus and he has been involved in numerous advocacy programmes, sat on a number of boards and was instrumental in setting up the Cancer NGO Association (CANGO) comprising Chief Executive representation from the Cancer Society, New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation, Leukaemia and Blood Cancer New Zealand, Melanoma Foundation, the Prostate Cancer Foundation, Hospice New Zealand, Beat Bowel Cancer Aotearoa and the Gynaecological Cancer Foundation.

In the years Mr Kelly has been with the National Office, he has greatly raised the profile and image of the Society with his enthusiasm and energy. The National President Mr Murray MacCormick expressed his and the Society’s gratitude for Mr Kelly’s long term and valuable contribution. “He will be sadly missed and we wish him well with his endeavours.”
