Wellington-Horowhenua Branch –
National Conference Sponsorship for a member of our branch
As I’m sure you are aware, the annual Treecrops conference is coming soon and registration is still open at early-bird rates.
The conference theme this year is WATER the Elixir of Life, and it is being held in Ashburton the weekend before Easter (April 11-13). See the December TreeCropper magazine, pages 16/17, for full details.
This year’s conference is special to us for several reasons:
– It is the 40th National Conference
– It is being organised by two of our branch members
– Your committee is offering to part-sponsor one branch member to attend!!
Each year we part-sponsor one committee member to attend conference as Branch Delegate. This provides representation at organisation-level discussion, enables voting, and facilitates inclusion in policy and management decisions. This year’s delegate is Jean Hollis.
We know that many of you attend and enjoy National Conference. To extend this fabulous experience further, your committee is offering to part-sponsor a member place also this year.
Our aim in offering this opportunity is to encourage newer members (or those who have never attended conference before) to attend and participate in an amazing supportive network.
The conference registration fee is $200 (if registered by 27th Feb). For one lucky member your branch will pay this fee. To apply for our part-sponsor invitation, just use the Branches > Get-in-touch tab above, fill in the brief form with Subject ‘Conference Sponsorship’, and your message stating why you believe it should be you that is selected for this special offer.
Please respond by Wednesday 19th February . Winner will be notified within two days of closing date.
And if you are planning to attend conference and wish to co-ordinate travel arrangements with Jean, please contact her.
[Archive note: Conference-2014 was enjoyed by many attendees – watch for Conference-2015!]
