Colin Smith – Treasurer

Colin is retired, and enjoys working as a volunteer for community organisations. He has a wide range of interests, but particularly enjoys computer programming.
His initial area of expertise was as an electronic engineer, and worked in such fields as microwave and ship to shore communication systems, avionics, television, car radios and other consumer based products.

Finally after a short interval at the Auckland Technical Institute teaching Radio and electronic trainees, he took a break from the electronic world, and obtained a law degree from the Auckland University. During this period he worked as a law clerk in legal offices. On graduation, he joined a computer software company as an office manager. It did not take long to realize that computer programming was his ideal occupation. After a couple of years training he started his own software company specialising in custom design software programs. Many of those programs were based on accounting principles, giving him a good understanding of finance in general.
