Event description
Nau Mai Haere Mai. ANZSPM Aotearoa welcomes you to Wellington for our annual trainee and new fellow day. Friday 29 October 2021

About this event


We have decided to switch to hybrid delivery to give people in Auckland and elsewhere the opportunity to attend virtually, with a new online ticket price of $50. This means that unless greater restrictions are put in place, we will still be meeting in-person at Te Omanga Hospice with a maximum capacity of 20 people. We are currently at capacity for in-person attendance, however please email if you would like to be placed on the waiting list.

If you would like to attend virtually, tickets are available now.

If you have purchased an in-person ticket but would like to switch to virtual attendance, please contact and we will arrange this for you.

We thank you for your patience as we continue to monitor the situation
