The Australia and New Zealand College of Notaries (ANZCN) has appointed two new members to represent New Zealand to its Board of Governors for the first time.
Ken Lord, Consultant for Parry Field Lawyers in Christchurch, and Stewart Germann, Partner at Stewart Germann Law Office (SGL) in Auckland will begin their terms on the Board on 1 January 2020.
David Roughan of Northlaw in Whangarei won the first contested election to become the only New Zealand member on the Board two years ago.
During his term, David’s Board amended the ANZCN’s constitution to double the representation of New Zealand Notaries to two Governors. David has been a Notary Public for more than 40 years. His term on the Board ends 31 December 2019.
The ANZCN is an independent professional trans-Tasman network of Notaries Public, with voluntary membership, complementing the work of the Societies of Notaries in NZ and in most Australian states, maintaining standards for notarial education and practice.
