Three invites are outstanding, to United Future, Mana and the Maori Party. We've still yet to talk to an actual person from the first, and will be chasing all three up in the next week. If anyone has any inside contacts in United Future in particular please let me know! Reasonably confident we'll have someone from Mana, no idea about the Maori Party.
Plus we have a snazzy poster, which you can see illustrating this post, thanks very kindly to Nick at AUSA for the designing and the Women's Rights Officers there for organising it.
