NZIFST Conference 2014, 1st - 3rd July Air Force Museum of New Zealand, Wigram, Christchurch, New Zealand.
Explore Christchurch and Canterbury, our amazing backyard
DID YOU KNOW.... Christchurch is no. 2 on The New York Times's 52 Places to Go in 2014 and the gateway to New Zealand's South Island. Vibrant and ever-evolving it is surrounded by a region of natural wonders.
The Canterbury branch is proud to be hosting the annual NZIFST conference next year.
Christchurch has had a number of challenges over the past 3 years, and while these events have been incredibly difficult for all concerned, what has been truly heartening has been the spirit shown throughout. What we are now seeing is this spirit driving tremendous opportunities to build our city better than it was before.
This spirit has inspired the theme for next years conference - Challenges into Opportunities.
The conference committee are in the early stages of defining the session topics and we would love to hear your thoughts. Feel free to contact us if you have any ideas on topics and/or speakers.
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank my conference committee in advance for all their efforts. I look forward to seeing you all in the garden city in 2014!
Jonathan Cox Conference Chairman
