AusIMM New Zealand Branch Conference 2017
Rydges Latimer Christchurch, 10–13 September

Dean Conference Convenor

Tēnā koutou katoa

On behalf of the NZ Branch, and the Organising Committee, I'd like to offer a huge thank you to all participants for taking the time to attend and support the AusIMM NZ Branch Conference 2017.

We hope your experience was a productive networking and learning experience. The feedback I received during and after the event was very positive.

As a result of good delegate numbers and the support of our sponsors, a profit is assured.  The surplus will be used to help fund branch activities during the year ahead.

The NZ Branch faces some challenges in terms of our 2018 conference.  However, I'm confident the AusIMM will continue the 51 year tradition of offering a worthy event, albeit the format may change.

Your continued support and input is essential part of ensuring we can adapt and deliver to expectations.
