Stephen’s late mother and more recently he himself have Parkinson’s. He has been on the Auckland Parkinson's Action Group since 2014.
Stephen’s recent retirement allows more time to dedicate to helping the Parkinson's community. He is both a qualified Accountant and Engineer with a wide range of high level business experience.

Stephen is currently involved with: Auckland Jewish Council (President), New Zealand Jewish Council (President), Parnell Heritage Inc. (Patron) and the Auckland Chevra Kadisha & Benevolent Society (Chairperson). His experience with these organisations and others gives him an appreciation for the challenges not-for-profits face.
In his spare time Stephen enjoys playing bridge as well as boating and fishing. Stephen wants to hold a position on the board of trustees so that he can make a positive contribution to people living with Parkinson's.
Andrew Dunn is seeking re-election to the board. Andrew has been involved with Parkinson's since his father's diagnosis in 1980.
He is one of the founding fathers of Parkinson’s New Zealand, made a Life Member of the Society in 1996 and has been actively involved in four divisions - Wellington, Hawke’s Bay, Canterbury and Otago.
Andrew has also served on the National Board most recently as Chair 2008-2015.
Judy Clarke has been on the Board for the past four years and is involved in the Hawke’s Bay Action Group. Judy is seeking re-election for the board.
Judy came from a medical background where she owned a podiatry practice and specialised in the High-Risk Foot clinic at the Diabetes Centre, Hawke’s Bay District Health Board. When both of Judy’s children where at school she spent a very active nine years on two Boards of Trustees, the last two as Chairperson. This gave Judy a huge insight into boards and governance and led to her completing a certificate in BoT Governance.
Judy’s goal is to continue to help to develop a positive framework within the new organisation and ensure that all people with Parkinson’s, their carer’s and whanau are given knowledge, education and support to enable them to live well with Parkinson’s.
Having been diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2007 Judy would love the opportunity to see the organisation grow and develop with a strong Board.
