We will be holding the 2021 New Zealand Chapter Event in Queenstown, on 5 & 6 May, at the St Moritz Hotel.

This event is about connecting with your colleagues from across the country, hearing and seeing stories of success, and planning for the future of health care in New Zealand.

On 5 May, lunch will be provided at the hotel from 12noon, prior to our start time of 1.30pm. We will move into a full afternoon of presentations and information exchange, following by a networking event over drinks. This is an opportunity to connect with your colleagues from across New Zealand.

On 6 May we will begin at 9am (after any remaining registrations) and conclude at 3pm to enable people to catch flights that leave Queenstown just after 4pm.

Throughout the event we will be focusing on:

  • More networking and more time to connect together as colleagues form across New Zealand.
  • More focus on ethnicity in our reporting, and other, presentations
  • More examples from an HRT user perspective

Registrations Close: 23 April 2021

This event is intended to be a fully face-to-face event which will only be impacted by our national alert level changing.
