GOVIS 2017 - Early Bird Registration is Open

We are pleased to announce that early bird registration is now open for GOVIS 2017.

We've all been called to respond better to the citizens, businesses and service providers we work with.  We know that the vehicles for delivering a responsive government are not always as effective as they can be.  That is why you need to register your attendance today to learn about:

  • lessons on how to keep pace with technological developments and the increasing demands of citizens
  • how to accelerate innovation
  • unlocking business value from information
  • attracting, retaining and developing your most valuable resource - your teams!

This year's conference has attracted a diverse range of provocative speakers so come, be informed, be challenged by what responsive government means in the context of information and technology.   Early bird registration runs through until May 10th, 2017.

We expect the draft conference programme to be published by March 31st.

For further information on pricing and what is included check the conference website.

It's that time again,  where the GOVIS committee warmly invites you to networking drinks and nibbles at The Thistle Inn. 

As well as an opportunity to network with your peers and colleagues, you'll get a chance to hear about this year's GOVIS conference - Responsive Government.

For catering purposes please RSVP by Friday April 7th to GOVIS.

Until then......

The GOVIS Committee

Come along to the third of our ‘Meet the CIOs’ series of lunchtime forums. In this series we will hear from information and technology leaders from across the public sector. We’ll find out how organisations are using technology and information to meet the needs of citizens and business. How are CIOs leading change? What lessons have they learned? And what does it all mean for information and technology professionals?

In April our CIO is Stuart Wakefield, Chief Information Officer at the Ministry of Education. Stuart will tell us about the Education System Digital Strategy, how it was developed, and the impact it is having across New Zealand. We have limited space for this free event.

People who work for GOVIS member agencies will be given priority for places.

As usual, a light lunch will be provided.

To register, go to Eventbrite.
