New Zealand Geothermal Association Action Plan

The NZGA Action Plan is a key document setting out tasks to be progressed. The Action Plan sets out tasks that can reasonably be achieved by the Association with available funds and is formalised in discussions by the Board. The Action Plan gives focus to the activities of the Association and in particular the activities of the Executive Officer. An outline of its current status is presented at each Board meeting. The table shows the current status of Action Plan items. The table also stands as a record of the key activities of the Association throughout the year.
