Save the date! Thursday 31 August and Friday 1 September 2023

Please save the date for the 2023 NZ Chapter Summit, which will be taking place on Thursday 31 August and Friday 1 September, 2023.

The Draft Program and Social Calendar will be available in the coming months

With the theme of ‘NEXUS‘ and the tag line ‘Stronger Together’, the NZ Chapter Summit will be a fantastic opportunity for two days of professional development, networking and inspiration.

NEXUS: noun
1. A connection or series of connections linking two or more things
2. A central or focal point

Each Chapter hosts a number of events and networking opportunities throughout the year, some are face to face and Chapter specific and some are open to all Chapters via online SIGs and webinars. Chapter events are a great opportunity to meet colleagues who work in the same areas and streams as you, to ask questions, network with other professionals and leave feeling inspired!
