The NZPCN conference committee regretfully advises the postponement of the 2022 conference which was to take place in Queenstown in March. With the Omicron variant spreading through several New Zealand communities, and forecast to spread further and quickly, the timing is not right. We also have more than 100 participants, a gathering of that size is not permitted under the governments COVID-19 red setting, which we understand and support. The new conference dates are Sunday 4th until Wednesday 7th December 2022. All planned workshops, conference sessions and field trips will go ahead on these new dates and the planned venues in Queenstown. We wish to express a big heartfelt thank-you to all people helping to run this event - workshop convenors, field trip leaders, locals experts and venues - your flexibility and support means a lot.
Full refunds will be available for anyone not able to attend the conference on the new dates. We will update registration dates shortly. Please contact Alex Fergus if you have any questions. Thanks in advance for your understanding.
