Registrations for our 2021 conference are rolling in

Registrations for our 2021 Whanganui conference (Living on a Dynamic Coast - Ko Te Kawa o Tangaroa, he kawa ora) are coming in fast. Go to our conference page for more information and a link to register.

The free pre-conference workshop Working with Nature will probably “sell” out with only 9 tickets left available as at 1 February. This workshop is especially recommended if you haven’t attended one of our conferences before and for council staff and councillors. Information is on the same conference page as above. Here is a direct link to the registration page. Registrations are essential for catering and venue limit purposes.

We look forward to seeing many of you there!
