It was a great pleasure to host Mike Smith, CEO of the Wellington Division of the Cancer Society at our meeting on 23 February. Our thanks to Jay Jaiganesh who is a Cancer Society board member for arranging for Mike to speak to us.
Introduced to the meeting by Allan Frazer, Mike gave us a very comprehensive picture of the work of the Society. This work is carried out in conjunction with the other Divisions of the Cancer Society operating around New Zealand.
Mike is a local Karori resident with his wife and family and has been active as a school trustee at St Teresa’s in Karori. He previously held the CEO position at New Zealand Red Cross amongst other top Not for Profit positions.
