This months’ edition features a profile of  Marilyn Goodwin, recently elected as the new Chair following the retirement of Harvey Porteous; the updated branding adopted by the Federation especially designed for legibility across print, web, and mobile interfaces; several new apps and the latest update on SeniorHangouts. There is also a very interesting article about Chorus who, partnered with MediaWorks’ Newshub, are helping to persuade technophobic or sceptic Kiwis to overcome their technology fears and experience the extraordinary benefits it offers in 2021. It features Georgie and Ted Grant from Mosgiel, both in their early 70’s, who by their own admission, have ‘very limited’ engagement when it comes to online life.
