Lead In 2019 - draft programme

Lead In, our annual national gathering where song leaders can learn, share and reflect, will take place this year at El Rancho in Waikanae, near Wellington at Queen's Birthday weekend.

Lead In 2019 promises to be another energizing and valuable experience for SLNA song leaders. The draft programme includes plenty of opportunities to share songs and ideas, to discuss, evaluate - and sing!
