Welcome On behalf of NMIT, and all New Zealand PIN member ITPs, I would like to invite you to the 2012 PIN Conference in Nelson. The effects of the global financial crisis and constant technological development are just two elements of a changing world that are massively impacting on tertiary education. To hide from the change that needs to occur is not the PIN membership way – to be at the forefront of developing and delivering ideas and solutions for a ‘future state’ tertiary sector is our commitment. The 2012 conference theme of ‘Facing the Future’ will provide the opportunity for us to visit and challenge the future and, as a result, take away ‘gold nuggets’ that will inspire and provide opportunities for the future of tertiary education. You can look forward to an informative and highly enjoyable conference in one of New Zealand’s most beautiful regions. Nelson is a great place to relax: artists, markets, beaches, mountains, national parks, and more sunshine hours than anywhere else in New Zealand. We hope that you can join us. Tony Gray Chief Executive Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology (NMIT) Host Institute: NMIT  The Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology (NMIT) operates predominantly from campuses in Nelson, Richmond and Blenheim and from the RNZAF Base Woodbourne site in Marlborough, covering three main geographical areas: Nelson Bays, Tasman, and Marlborough which stretches from the Marlborough Sounds in the north to the Kaikoura district in the south. Each of these areas has distinct demographic and socio-economic features which impact on the regional labour market. The region has the nation’s largest concentration of fisheries, aquaculture, and wine industries. It also has substantial forestry, horticulture, aviation (both at Woodbourne and Nelson), and tourism industries, a thriving arts community, and large conservation estates including three national parks.
