Kia ora koutou,
I hope you are staying well and have not been too disrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic. I certainly feel lucky to be in New Zealand as I watch news from overseas about rising cases and new lockdowns. I hope everyone’s whanau and colleagues overseas are also staying safe.
The disrupted year has meant that planning for the ORSNZ conference has not really been possible. The decision from Council was to support smaller locally organised events, e.g., half- or full-day workshops, instead of trying to hold a national conference either physically or online. Anyone interested in organising local events can access Regional Interest Group (RIG) funding and/or Special Interest Group (SIG) funding to support the events (see ORSNZ_SIG_Processes.pdf, particularly footnote 7). Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’d like more information.
Although we are not holding our annual conference in 2020, we would like to hold our AGM online via Zoom. If you are interested in attending please use the link below to select one or more times you can make.
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with any questions or concerns.
Noho ora mai, Mike
