PHOTOS - NZPI Past Presidents

15 March 2019

NZPI’s first President, H F Johnson (KC), took office in 1931. To date we have had 45 different Presidents, all of whom have helped champion the planning profession and the work of the Institute. As we close in on 90 years since H F Johnson first took on the role, we are working to compile a photographic tribute of the 45 Past Presidents, which will be displayed in the national office.



We need your help to complete this photographic record as we have a number of blank slots at present. If any member has a suitable photograph of any of the Past Presidents listed below, please contact Lee Parlane so we can organise a copy for our photographic record.
