Kaitiakitanga-ā-Matihiko | Digital Stewardship

Rāpare 6 o Pipiri - Rāmere 7 o Pipiri, 2019
Thursday 6 June - Friday 7 June, 2019
Shed 6, Queens Wharf, Wellington

The GOVIS 2019 conference, Kaitiakitanga-ā-Matihiko | Digital Stewardship, is now complete. The GOVIS committee would like to thank our speakers and everyone who attended this year’s conference, your presence helped make this event a great success and we appreciate the enthusiasm and positive spirit you brought over the two days.  We hope you found the conference inspiring and worthwhile – we sure did! 

We believe our incredible speakers provided in-depth insights into the stewardship challenges that they face in their roles, and that we as public servants are facing now, and will face in the future. We hope that you will be able to take these insights back to your agency and implement positive changes, big or small, to processes, attitudes, or outcomes. 

In order to make our next conference even more successful, we’ll be sending around a survey so please look out for it in your inbox. We thank you in advance for your comments and suggestions – we’ll be taking these on board to ensure future GOVIS conferences are relevant and reflective of you needs. 

One last big thank you goes out to our sponsors, especially our premier sponsor, Datacom, for making this year’s conference possible!
