Full Text: Two people received life memberships at conference--foundation kaumatua for Te Runanga o Aotearoa NZNO, Hone Ahu (right) and Taranaki NZNO stalwart Alison Brown (far right).

[ILLUSTRATION OMITTED]

Ahu accepted his Te Runanga Life membership on behalf of his "nanny and granddad" who brought him up. "They spoke little English, had a tiny house with a mud floor and our fridge was a box hanging from an apple tree. But the love and affection they gave me is still with me today. Thank you to those who nominated me."

Brown said it was a privilege to work for NZNO and "to give huge hours for our colleagues. It is an honour to accept this and I feel completely overwhelmed".
