NZ Chapter History
Following the efforts of a key group of individuals lead by the first NZ Chapter President, Dr Ton Bührs, the NZ Chapter of EIANZ was created with the inaugural meeting on 28th February 2003 in Christchurch. This brought together potential members from various parts of New Zealand.
The official launch of the NZ Chapter took place in May 2003 at Te Papa in Wellington. Since then the NZ Chapter has focused on building membership of EIANZ in New Zealand with regular forums/meetings in Christchurch, Wellington, Auckland and Bay of Plenty. As membership numbers grow, events will start to happen in other regional centres.
In March 2005 the NZ Chapter hosted the annual EIANZ conference. The conference was held in Christchurch and over 230 people attended from both sides of the Tasman.
In October 2010, the NZ Chapter was again pleased to be hosting the annual EIANZ conference, which was held in Wellington.
