President's Column 9 Sept 2019

Congratulations to Phil Taylor and the Organising Committee on an excellent ANZIF conference last week. I have received a lot of positive feedback on various aspects of the event. Something new that was tried this time was the formulation of resolutions from the conference sessions. Thanks to Gary Morgan for proposing this innovation, Jim Carle for leading the process at the conference, and the session chairs for articulating the resolutions. The resolutions will be considered and prioritised for action (where appropriate and feasible) at the next NZIF Council meeting on Monday 9th Sept. We are hoping this innovation will provide more continuity between conferences and allow us to potentially do more with the excellent information and insights which our conferences always present.
