Kia ora koutou Kaitiaki Pukapuka,
New Zealand’s priority is slowing the spread of COVID-19 and controlling this Delta outbreak. Based on the current alert level restrictions, the SLANZA national executive have elected to cancel the SLANZA Conference planned for Wellington in October this year.
Given developments, the organisers do not believe it would be responsible to gather a group of school professionals together and wanted to give you as much notice as possible on the cancellation of the event.
We will be working through the process of cancellations and refunds in the coming weeks and ask for your patience and understanding at this time. For any specific queries please contact the event manager, Raewyn Tse (email@example.com) or the conference convenor, Clare Forrest (firstname.lastname@example.org ).
If you secured your accommodation through the registration process, or with the assistance of Conference Innovators, your booking has been cancelled and you will not need to take further action. If you secured your own accommodation, we recommend you contact your provider as soon as possible.
Members will receive further communications specifically regarding the AGM which will be held virtually on 16 October 2021. Those who were providing workshops and presentations will also be contacted about the possibility of other opportunities to share your skills and knowledge.
We encourage you to take care of yourselves and your family during this time.
