Book Publishers New Zealand are delighted to award Elizabeth Caffin Honorary Life Membership of BPANZ.
BPANZ rules state that Life Membership can be granted to a person who has "rendered outstanding service to the Association".

Elizabeth has certainly done that having been President of BPANZ from 2003 - 5 and a Councillor for many years.

As well as this direct involvement with BPANZ it is important to recognise the wider service to the industry that Elizabeth has given.
During her distinguished career with Reed, Collins and Auckland University Press she was always heavily involved in book industry matters.
Warmest congratulations Elizabeth.
Elizabeth retired from Auckland University Press in May 2007. For a report on that event and to read some of the tributes paid to her that night link here.

I was delighted to read that Elizabeth Caffin has been honoured with life membership of the Book Publishers Association of New Zealand. I have enjoyed working with Elizabeth in her many roles, including when she was for a period, a Trustee of the Sargeson Trust.
Graham, thank you for keeping your readers informed of all things literary.
Best wishes
Helen W
