Past Events

In March 2012, former NZUGA Chair, Robin Clark, spoke on "Art and Science", telling us of his work using light spectrums to date antique and ancient paintings and manuscripts. At the end of the talk, Robin was thanked for his contribution over many years to the NZUGA and given a set of pounamu (New Zealand Greenstone Jade) cufflinks.

At our October 2011 event, Damien Grant spoke on "Building against earthquakes; lessons from Christchurch". Following his address, Belinda Brown, Deputy High Commissioner, gave us a brief update on the situation in Christchurch and the impact to the New Zealand economy.

The balcony door to the penthouse remains open on a surprisingly balmy Autumn evening.  All eyes to the front as the Speaker section of the evening begins.
