Save the date! The 2020 NZSO Conference is taking place 16 - 17 October 2020 at the Distinction Hotel, Rotorua. 

This years theme is Whiria te kaha.

Whiria is the twist of the flax, weaving and binding it together, and as we weave and bind our elements together we make it strong.  Like a kete, or wahakura, the weaving and binding the flax together makes the kete strong.  Its like health services, and people in the health services, we want to weave it all together, and as you know, kaha is about strength.  In essence its about everyone weaving their skills together to make a strong health service for our people.  When we think about weaving and harakeke we think about its versatility, flexibility and the support it can provide.

More information will be announced soon.
