Catherine Stedman, NZSG President and Zoe Raos immediate past President hope you were able to attend another terrific NZSG ASM.

A big shout out to convenors of ASM 2022 held in Auckland 23 to 25 November. The team from Middlemore hospital included: 

  • Ashok Raj - Lead 
  • Alasdair Patrick 
  • Judy Huang 
  • Ravinder Ogra. 

The event was organised and managed by Emma Prattley, Conference Manager at Conference Innovators who made the event run like clockwork with a great crew. 

The three-day event started with a pƍwhiri (welcoming) including kapa haka from a local kura sharing their energy with the delegates, presenters and honoured guests. The event was full of educational, informative and thought-provoking presentations from local and international speakers. 

Thanks to the great convening team the dinner was a roaring success - literally as it was complete with a dinosaur or two! The event was closed with a farewell - poroporoaki led by outgoing NZSG President Zoe Raos. 

More on the awesome ASM 2022 is upcoming in the February 2023 panui however The NZSG Executive couldn't let 2022 come to a close without saying thank to thank everyone who made the event a success.
