The 2020 AGM was held at 4pm on Thursday 15th October in Auckland at Fisher House, 117 Kerwyn Avenue, East Tamaki.  

Following the year in recess, and with no further offers of help on the committee being received, SAANZ is to close the organisation, and simply maintain a Facebook presence and retain contact via other organisations that currently include our contact details.  There is a wealth of information about sleep apnoea across many websites, and our Facebook page will provide links to some of these, plus information about where to go if you need diagnosis or CPAP treatment.  The official closing of the organisation will simply remove all administration and financial operation requirements, and remaining funds will be donated to an organisation that is working in the area of sleep health support.

Minutes of the final AGM of SAANZ held at Fisher House, East Tamaki, Auckland on 15 October 2020.
