The SOLGM Central Branch stretches from the Wairoa and the Hawkes Bay to Taranaki and down to Horowhenua in the south including all of the local authorities within the Horizons and Taranaki Regional Council boundaries. The branch has over 150 members who have the opportunity to meet twice yearly in Taupo – typically April and December. This central location is chosen as the Branch meeting is run as a combined meeting with the Midlands Branch. The National Executive Committee Member, Branch President and Branch Secretary welcome any SOLGM members to the branch meetings and new members are always welcome – contact SOLGM direct or the Branch President / Secretary for more information.
