Glover to steer busy RSA year

Jenepher Glover was elected as the Dunedin Returned and Services Association president at the association's 96th annual meeting on Wednesday.

A past president (2008-09), Ms Glover is a detective with the Dunedin CIB, and has been a member of the New Zealand Police for 32 years.

She has served with police in the Solomon Islands and with the United Nations in Timor Leste.

Ms Glover said it was a busy time coming up for the Dunedin RSA, which faced the multiple challenges of increasing its membership, including recruiting younger members, and finding a new RSA clubrooms after the United Services Community Club Trust went into the liquidation and the building where their clubrooms formerly were went on the market.

The national rules were also being rewritten this year, and the planning for celebrations for the centenary of World War 1 as well as the anniversary of the forming of the RSA was getting under way.

The AGM was held at HMNZS Toroa in St Andrew St, central Dunedin.
