Annual Workshop

The 2021 Workshop is most likely to be held in the Wellington region. More details to come.

The division runs a very successful annual workshop over three-days. This is an excellent opportunity to socialise with fellow surveyors, discuss business issues with others in similar size practices in different parts of the country and offers good learning opportunities for participants.

Feedback from the 2020 workshop:

As a first-time attendee at the workshop, I have to say I was really impressed by the quality of the venue, organisation, and sessions. I found the entire experience fun, informative, thought-provoking and at times challenging (in a positive way). The quality of the speakers and sessions was very high in my opinion, and I commend the organisation committee on their well-run and well-put-together event. I have returned to work energised, motivated and with a fairly decent to-do list of tweaks and improvements for my business. I was encouraged by the warmth and comradeship from the other attendees and have made many new connections that I am certain will be of significant value to me throughout my career. I’m very much looking forward to attending next year!
