IFA hands out awards

Six people were recognised for their contribution to financial planning at the Institute of Financial Adviser’s conference in Auckland.

The IFA made two Fellowships recognising outstanding contributions at the national level and five President’s Awards recognising volunteer service to the Institute at a local or committee level.

Fellowships
Fellowship were awarded to Lyall Daines for his contribution to Tasman Branch and IFA for over 25 years and to John Doolan for his 22 years service to Central Region Branch and IFA.

President’s Awards


Five President’s awards were made honouring the Institute’s quiet achievers who have dedicated their time, energy and intellect for the common good of IFA and the financial advice profession.
They were given to:

  • Neil Miller for his contribution to the Central Region branch. He is in his second decade on the local branch committee.
  • Luke McKenzie from Hamilton for his contribution to the Waikato branch executive over the past six years.
  • Coralie Yorke from Palmerston North for her reliable and dedicated contribution to the Central Region branch and executive.
  • Mike Staal from Auckland for his contributions to FPI, IAFP and IFA. He was involved in the development of the first ode of Professional Pratice and Conduct for the association and more recently serving on the Code Committee in 2009.
  • Fred Dodds from Wellington for his long service and selfless contribution to the profession which spans over three decades, and his outstanding service, enthusiasm and concern for the wellbeing and development of financial advisers. Dodds, who headed up TOWER Financial Advisory Services, was made redundant recently and is considering his future in the industry.

I would hope that other advisers, be they IFA members or not, join me in congratulating Neil, Luke, Coralie, Fred, Lyall and John for their fabulous voluntary contributions over the many many years.

Most of these folk were contributing and working on committees when we were all part of the LUA....way back in the day.

These people do a lot of unpaid hours to help other advisers.

Thanks guys - all thoroughly deserved.

I also would like to take the opportunity to congratulate all the recipients of the IFA awards. These awards are the result of many years hard work and dedication for the IFA and its members.

In particular I would like to acknowledge two good friends, Stephen O'Connor and Lyall Daines.

I had the privilege to work with Stephen on the IFA board in the early 2000s. It was a time when the IFA was going through a particularly difficult time and Stephen as Chair was never afraid to make difficult but correct decisions. He is a man of great integrity, huge intelligence, but most of all, has an amazing ability to relate to people from all walks of life. He is truly a wonderful ambassador to our profession.

As a member of the Tasman branch, I have worked with Lyall Daines for more years than the two of us care to count. Lyall's contribution to our branch has been absolutely amazing. He is also one of the most decent people you could meet. To be made a Fellow of the Institute is true acknowledgement of his contribution.

I have been privileged over the years to work with people like Stephen and Lyall. Both are wonderful examples of the many good people who have worked extremely hard for the IFA but never for their own benefit, only for the benefit of their fellow members and the Institute as a whole.

Again, congratulations Stephen (SOC!) and Lyall. I value your friendship immensely.
