GOVIS 2015 - Save the Date!

The GOVIS 2014 conference with a theme of delivery@pace proved to be one of the most successful conferences held by GOVIS.  Building on this, the GOVIS 2015 Conference has now been confirmed for Thursday 18 and Friday 19 June, 2015 at Te Papa. 

Please mark these dates in your diary now!

The GOVIS 2015 conference theme is "Building Trust".  Current events are challenging how citizens and agencies view their relationships with each other.  What does trust mean for Information and Technology professionals within NZ government? How do trusted relationships develop?  How do government agencies work to build trust?  How is trust maintained?

We will be inviting speakers to provide their insights and practical experience for how trust "maps" across the government and industry space.  We'll be looking for presenters who can share experiences ranging from the soft skills required to build trust through defined practices and mechanisms they have used to nurture, manage and sustain trust.  Added dimensions to building trust are content and audience - trusted data, trusted information?  What experiences do we have of trust within teams, within agencies, across agencies or even in the international sphere?

In the true spirit of GOVIS we will be looking for shared stories of successful practice - and the lessons learned when the practice doesn't work so well.

Key dates:

 1 December 2014   Sponsorship opens 
 8 December 2014   Call for presentations opens
6 March 2015 Call for presentations closes 
 16 March 2015   Registration opens
 3 April 2015   Presentations selected

We encourage you to think about how you or your organisation will be able to contribute to the conference programme.
