Stanley Mulvany, Trustee, Secretary.

I am a retired GP in Invercargill. I have a keen interest in alpine climbing most of my life, a member of the NZ Alpine Club and a committee member of the Southland Section for many years. My main focus now is divided between Mountain packraftineering and volunteering on conservation projects. I have been the coordinator of the Southland Section of the NZAC conservation initiative since 2012 and in the last year a trustee of Permolat Southland.
