This year NSCSS celebrated its 40th Annual General Meeting — on the 16th July. We have since then re-branded and are known today as Auckland North Community and Development (ANCAD).
On 19th October 1974 a community seminar was held, whereby the recommendation was made that a Council of social service agencies be formed. North Shore Community & Social Service Council (NSCSSC) was then incorporated in 1975 under the umbrella of the NZ Council of Social Services (NZCOSS); established the same year.
Membership to NSCSSC at this time was $2per organisation. In the first year NSCSSC attracted 26 member organisations from across the North Shore.
Today ANCAD has 140 members from the North Shore, Upper Harbour, Hibiscus Bays and Rodney districts.
