Secretary Note | February

Regional Meetings are back for 2022.

Its been a long time, and we know that the connections have been missing from our membership network, and so therefore hoping to bring back the regional meetings for 2022, COVID-19, Delta and Omnicom considered!

If the above situations don’t pop up and interrupt our plans we will start with meetings in the four main city centers, Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin and as the meetings are only in four locations we thought we would make them more valuable and rewarding by combining a bit of learning and fun making it an all-day event.

We intend to mix it up at each location with morning coffee chats and Q&A sessions with industry experts, business partner promotions and supplier connections.  The afternoons will be more focused on networking, connecting and having fun – whether it be a game of lawn bowls, hands on workshops or a sign shop tour, dates and locations will be released soon.

I know many of our members have been wanting these meetings back for a while, and while we have been waiting for the right timing, the uncertainty and unpredictability in our world is not going away anytime soon and so we must lead and plan for whatever the future may look like.  So, 2022 is the time to get back to business and get a jump start on industry knowledge, benefits and new to market products, connect and network and let us and our suppliers help you to stay focused on your businesses and your livelihoods.
