NEW NZSTI BANK ACCOUNT NUMBER:  03-0263-0009293-000  (for the National account)
Due to a technical oversight, the bank account number on the annual fee invoice was not updated to NZSTI’s new Westpac bank details. To assist us in the transition to the new bank we would be grateful if you could update your online banking details to the above number for all payments to NZSTI's National account. (Branches have separate accounts.)

Annual Fee invoices were emailed in the first week of April - if you did not receive yours please email  info@nzsti.org to request one.

Forum glitches: 
1. If you have tried to turn on Forum Notifications without apparent success, please email me to check via the Admin access - your request probably has been saved but the display reverts to the default position. 
2. Some posts happen twice - we apologise for the extra notifications but as it does not always happen the cause is not easy to pinpoint. I monitor this and delete the duplicates so please let me know if I overlook any.
