We are just beginning to get the NZ theos-l resurrected and the
National President is agreeable to providing a weekly discussion topic
and other key members who have much knowledge to share have also
agreed to participate. So far I have the e-mail addresses of 15
members throughout NZ and HQ is communicating with them when ever we
need to get in touch with a Branch President or otherwise exchange
info. Once we get going we hope to put this avenue of communication in
the Sept issue of the official NZ Theosophy Magazine and thereby
interest some of the members-at-large who belong to HQ and not any
Branch as they do not live near one. anyway it will be interesting to
see what happens.
So for what it is worth, NZ is using e-mail at the HQ level and we
find it quicker to contact overseas people if they are on e-mail too.
I think you are all aware that I now work at the TS HQ as office
Kind regards to you all
