Faka’apa’apa Atu,

Warm Pacific Greetings
The past two years have been challenging physically, mentally, professionally and personally given the necessary restrictions imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic. Some of us have been affected, life as we knew it changed but I know we’re all soldiering on trying our best with our new normal.
However – touch wood – your Executive has identified the Thursday 8th of December 2022 for our APSTE Annual Fono 2022 and AGM. We hope to see you all there so please book the date and we will send the details soon as we work towards confirming them. What we can tell you is that it will be held in Auckland and it will be a one day event ending with our Fono Dinner.
Stay safe and let’s all be vaccinated to keep our families and communities safe.
Tofilau Nina Kirifi Alai
