Hi - I’m Diana. My daughter Isabella is a senior international gymnast training at CSG and a member of New Zealand’s national team. We moved to Christchurch from Auckland in August 2017. I own Pachemu Consulting and consult to an international law firm on business development and marketing, including legal editing. My background in gymnastics (apart from being a supportive gym parent) includes five years as a judge and three years serving on the management board of a large club in the North Island. My role included drafting policies, PR, fundraising and writing grants applications. I successfully helped procure $100,000 from external funding and increased club visibility through social media platforms, actively contributed as a member of the recruitment team for professional coaches, drafted job descriptions, managed media communications to ensure the club was highlighted in the news on a regular basis, and managed major fundraising events.
I look forward to representing the members of CSG as an active participant on the 2019 board of directors and thank you for giving me this opportunity to serve you in this capacity.
I have been associated with CSG for 17 years as a coach, a judge a Board Member and Life Member. I value my relationship with an organisation that is considered a leader not only in gymnastics but in sport in NZ. I have been a board member for 15 years. I want to ensure CSG is forward thinking, remains a leader in the delivery of gymnastics programme to our wider community, to share the institutional knowledge I have gained.
Jane was a CSG employee from 1993 to 2018 she was the Manager of our Watts Rd venue. Jane has additional responsibilities ranging from Health and Safety Officer, sanctioned competitions Events Director, Schools Programme Director and club funding (grants etc). Jane became a life member in 1997 and chaired the building committee from 1966-1997. Jane is now retired, but continues to be very involved with the club, in a voluntary capacity.
Grant Borrie was co-opted onto the CSG Board to fill a vacancy. Grant Borrie has recently retired but he is still consulting on a part time basis for Fulton Hogan. Grant brings strengths to the Board in contracts, construction, HR, Governance and management skills.
He is a member of the NZ Institute of Directors and a number of other not for profit organisations.
Barbara Price - Chair
I am a parent of a Senior MAG gymnast and wife of one of CSG's senior MAG judges. Within gymnastics I have been a support person and volunteer for 14 years helping with fundraising and catering. I have been a parent helper and chaperone for club competition tours, 5 years as parent helper for the Canterbury MAG team, Manager of the Canterbury MAG team, team chaparone/Manager for the NZ MAG team ti Sydney and Melbourne, and Head of Delegation for NZ MAG team to Japan International. In recent years, the charities commission has brought many changes to the 'For Public Benefit' sector and I feel, I have knowledge of this area which can assist the CSG board.
