I am currently the President of the New Zealand Institute of Chemistry.

The NZIC is coordinating activities for IYC 2011 in New Zealand with other organizations such as the Royal Society of New Zealand and the MacDiarmid Institute for Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology.

The NZIC is using IYC 2011 as an opportunity to increase understanding and appreciation of chemistry among the public, to generate interest and enthusiasm for chemistry, and to promote the many positive contributions that chemistry has made to our modern lifestyles.
