RTANZ Region 2 and 3 Seminar Committee

Saturday August 28 2021, Wairakei Resort, Taupo

Hello members

After COVID restrictions put a stop to the RTANZ seminars last year, it’s encouraging to hear the comments from members keen to see them return. This year’s theme is ‘Putting Members First’ and the seminar committee has been working hard on putting together a quality seminar. The content is coming together well and updates will be posted on this website, but in the meantime you can register your place for the seminar right now.

We look forward to seeing you there!
