NZOIA Events


Symposium 2018

Whoop whoop, Refresher Workshops for the 2018 Symposium are now loaded onto the NZOIA calendar.  These were super popular this year with lots of full courses going ahead and some people being turned away.  We can only run a limited amount of workshops at each Symposium as we run out of assessors, vehicles and venues.  Any refresher workshop scheduled for the Symposium is 99% guaranteed to run even if there is only 1 person it.  I'm not going to say 100% because I want to keep 1% up my sleeve for unforeseen circumstances. 

If you are planning on attending the Symposium there is no extra charge for Refresher Workshops.  You can secure your place on the Refresher Workshop now by completing your application and paying the workshop fee and we can take this off your Symposium registration fee in the future.  If you aren't planning on attending the Symposium you can still apply for the Refresher Workshop, however priority of place will be given to Symposium attendees. 



Events

Planning to attend a course in Feb/March next year?? Applications are closing in January so don't leave it too late and get swept up in end of term/Xmas etc. Infact, why not just get your application in now to ensure you don't miss out!?

New to the calendar....

Messages from the Office


Christmas Office Hours

The countdown is on, not long until the end of the year!

The NZOIA office will close for 3 weeks over the Christmas/New Year break from Friday 23 December until Monday 15 January 2018.

If you have new requests, make sure you contact us well before the 23 December, otherwise you are unlikely to get a response until January. Also make sure any new jobs you want to list go on the jobs board before we close, so we can publish them before we head away on holiday.

Let's Celebrate


Abel Tasman Canyons - Supreme Winners

A huge congratulations to Toine Houtenbos and the Abel Tasman Canyons team who won the Supreme Business Category at the Nelson Chamber of Commerce Business Awards last Friday! They also won the small medium enterprise category earlier in the night.

The judges found Abel Tasman Canyons was "grounded on absolute professionalism" and "ticked all the boxes", and noted the company's 100% 5 star reviews on Trip Advisor.

Well done Abel Tasman Canyons! Great to see an outdoor company recognised against other industries and come out on top.

FAQ


Q: I need to spend my Training budget before the end of the year.... can I pay NZOIA in advance and use it next year?

A: Yes. Ideally you will know what course you want to do, and we will make you up an invoice for this (check out our 2018 course calendar dates). Apply for the course online and request an invoice.

However, if you are not sure what you would like the money to go towards – then we can set up a NZOIA Credit Voucher for 'Course Fees' (essentially a Gift voucher/credit note) which is valid for 18 months. Please email your request to accounts@nzoia.org.nz.

Someone told me the other day it was only 6 more weeks until Christmas! That means only 6 more 4YA's. Where did 2017 go?!
