I would like to say how delighted I am to have been invited to assume the role of President, HaikuOz and look forward to working with Dawn Bruce, Greg Piko and other members of the Committee. The haiku community in Australia is flourishing. Talented work is constantly emerging from our local haijin, and members continue to impress with their success in competitions both in Australia and overseas. At HaikuOz we are committed to ensure that haiku in this country continues to make its mark. For information about haiku activities please visit the HaikuOz website at
