Meeting of Council of the N.Z. Educational Institute
Meeting of Council of the N.Z. Educational Institute.
The Meeting of the Council of the N.Z. Educational Institute was held at Auckland on June 6th and following days. The Delegates from the Otago Educational Institute were Messrs W. S. Fitzgerald, G. A. Simmers, James Jeffery, C. Mahoney and W. J. Moore. Copies of the report of the meeting of Council will be supplied to Members of the Institute at the Annual Meeting.
As the travelling expenses of Delegates were much heavier than usual this year, the Committee made a special effort to raise a fund to pay part of the expenses. A circular was issued to each member of the Institute asking for a subscription of 5s. towards Delegates' expenses. In response to this circular, the sum of £16 10s. was forwarded to the Committee, thus enabling it to pay to each of the five delegates the sum of £4 8s. Delegates this year also received a share of the £60 granted by the Minister of Education for travelling expenses.
The attention of members is particularly directed to the amendment of the constitution of the Educational Institute of New Zealand page 5 with regard to:—(i) The number of representatives a district is entitled to send to a General Council Meeting (Resolution 10, p. 16). (2) The increase of 4s. 6d. on each member's subscription necessitated by resolutions 12 and 15. (3) The appointment of an Executive, consisting of the officers of the Institute and three others chosen by the Council. The three for this year are Messrs White, Watson, and McMorran.
