We are sure you are all shocked and moved by the news from Christchurch.
Many of you will have family and friends down there. We hope that you have been able to make contact with them or have heard that they are safe.
We recognise that the disaster will affect everyone in different ways and ask that we all are mindful of those around us and the support they may need as they come to terms with the depth of the situation.
Our thoughts are with all our PMINZ members affected by this disaster as they try to cope with the ongoing aftershocks and uncertainties that will impact on their future both personally and professionally.
Our thoughts and best wishes go to the people of Christchurch.
