Janice McKenna has been a dedicated and committed volunteer for
the PSNZ for almost seven years, despite wanting to retire. This convention is likely to be her last as a volunteer.
Janice is our Trophies and Awards Coordinator with the unenviable task of keeping track of all
the trophies dispersed after the National Exhibition, National Convention and Regional Conventions.
She says emails and spreadsheets are her friends, but she has many friends worldwide through her love of wildlife photography.
Janice’s employment with New Zealand Couriers has saved the Society storage space and courier costs each year.
Multiply that over the past five years or so – Janice
and New Zealand Couriers have saved PSNZ a considerable amount of money.
At all times, liaising with Janice has been a delight. Her attention to detail and punctuality are paramount to the way she works. She is friendly, polite, efficient and well organised.
Nothing has been too much trouble, even when deadlines have been tight. She has retained her cool with the organising committees
and hopefully her engraver! Janice is a very keen traveller and excellent wildlife photographer and enjoys combining both when time and money allow.
Unfortunately, for now, she waits patiently for our borders to re-open while the polar bears she is desperate to photograph wait for her.
Janice’s passion for wildlife extends to conservation, and through her photography, she wants to showcase the extraordinary work in this area.
She has been a regular attendee at many national conventions and likes nothing more than soaking up the learning experiences and opportunities the Society presents.
“Learning and continuing to grow and improve is a never-ending journey, but an enjoyable one,” says Janice.
The Photographic Society of New Zealand has significantly benefitted from Janice’s commitment of time,
attention to detail and her place of work, and the Society is indebted to her for her generous contributions.
