National Coordinating Group
SCMA says thanks and goodbye to Michael Wallace who has served diligently as Convenor of the National Coordinating Group (NCG) till last month when he stepped down to prepare for his new assignment as General Secretary for the World Student Christian Federation in Geneva. Stuart Bradshaw, outgoing treasurer, replaces Michael. Farewell Michael, welcome Stuart. Other members of the NCG are Daniel List (Otago), Tilly Flood (Canterbury), Jean Kite and Toby Harper (Auckland), Jonathan Ah Kit (Victoria), Stuart Bradshaw (Treasurer/Convenor) and Mandla Akhe Dube (national secretary).
Movement Development Fund
SCMA is excited that early this year it commissioned the regional development workers programme and is convinced it is the way to go. SCMA must regain its pole position on campuses and offer its critical thinking mass as a challenge to right wing fundamental Christian growth. It is out of this vision that SCMA will launch a movement development fund on 14 December 2004. The Agnes MacGregor Salmond Movement Development Fund will become the financial backbone for the movement building efforts over the next decade and beyond. Nesta Salmond was a leader in the movement and served as National Secretary. SCMA is grateful to the family for according us the honour to name the fund after her.
