New President and Secretary for HaikuOz

I am delighted to announce the appointment of

Jo McInerney as president, and

Greg Piko as secretary

of the Australian Haiku Society (HaikuOz)

After four years in office, both Graham Nunn and I are stepping down and I would like to thank Graham warmly for
his splendid and sustained efforts as secretary over this period.

Both Jo and Greg are established and respected poets on the national and international haiku scene and will sustain and develop this poetic genre in Australia.

For general news about Haiku in Australia 2010 please see my report posted directly below this one.
