IPANZ E-Update - December 2019

Kia ora koutou This is our last e-update before Christmas. So it comes with my very best wishes for your Christmas break. Another very busy year for you all. You will have got my note about the State Sector legislation – we would be pleased to hear any views that you would like us to consider putting into our submission. The timeframe is extremely short for the 31st January submission deadline. But please do contact us if you can.

IPANZ E-Update - November 2019

Kia ora koutou We are feeling a bit overwhelmed, but in a very positive way! We were so pleased to get a record number of applicants for our board positions, focussing this time on extending the diversity on our board. And we are delighted to be getting more positive comments on our communications on social media and our e-update. It is especially gratifying to hear from people in Auckland and Christchurch who do not get the ready access to the same number of events.

IPANZ E-Update - September 2019

The September E-Update - A cautionary tale of phishing! Last week, someone in Australia sent out an email from IPANZ to 400 of our members, apparently about an RFP. It was a complete scam, our email was hacked. To all of you who received the message, I do apologise. We had moderately complex passwords set for our emails but even still, one password was compromised.

PS News - Some good reading for these winter evenings

By the time you get this I will be in the UK on my planned leave – and I will be back in early August. I have spent a busy and productive time in my first three weeks. I am very impressed by the creative thoughts, deep knowledge and enthusiasm of the many people I have met. Some new products and functions are being designed. Watch this space.
I wanted to draw your attention to our Public Sector Journal which is out now.
