This years Conference and AGM will be held on the 12th & 13th of May 2012 in Wellington at the CQ Hotels.

Saturday the 12th will be dedicated to the Conference which will be themed on Diabetes this year. The day will progress through the journey of a diabetic patient with a range of fabulous speakers and presentations. We will be releasing information of who those speakers are in the coming weeks.

The AGM will be held on Sunday 13th of May. A full agenda will be provided in the coming weeks, but as a teaser - we have a lot of interesting and exciting things to cover. To get you ready for this the executive have prepared reading material covering:

- Membership and Membership levels

- NZOPA Structure responding to the recommendation presented at the last AGM to change the structure of the NZOPA to reflect the changes that are occuring and enable the association to operate more effectively.

- Training Days All reading material has been loaded onto the website. When you log in to the website's members only section they

are under AGM 2012 Reading Material It wouldn't be an NZOPA Conference/AGM weekend without the opportunity to smash a small golf ball around a

course. A game has been arranged for:

Friday 11th May

Mirimar Golf Course

of April.

Traing Day 17th of March

The next and last opportunity to attend an NZOPA training day is the 17th of March. The beauty of this one is that it will be presented online so you don't have to leave your office or kicthen table (depending on where your computer is).

This training day will again be focused on Gait Analysis and will look to extend the learning done at the Training Day last November in Brisbane.

The day will involve: - Pre reading and watching a video of the November 2011 Australian Training day on Gait Analysis. - An online discussion about Gait Analysis - Follow up questions and forum discussion via the NZOPA website for those that register. Registration is open and can be done online here.
