Networking Opportunities

The conference is a rare and invaluable opportunity to network with passionate NFP professionals from around the country and swap notes on what is working – and what is not working – in your workplace. We are expecting 180 attendees this year, from NFPs right across New Zealand.

As well as tea, coffee and lunch breaks to exchange ideas and share learnings, we have also programmed in some interactive group networking sessions to make sure you have a chance to connect and share your experiences with other conference attendees.

Join us for conference camaraderie and canapés!

From 4.30pm on the evening of Monday 19 February, your conference registration is also your invitation to the conference networking event, including complimentary drinks and canapés.

It’s the perfect opportunity to catch up and continue conversations from the day, make new friends and share the joys and challenges of your role with colleagues from across New Zealand’s NFP sector.
