Taituarā Conference 2021

What does the future look like? What are the opportunities and challenges ahead? How can we focus, prepare, think differently and respond to these opportunities and challenges?  With demographic changes, fiscal pressures, a disrupted climate, and a pandemic to add to the mix, we face a time of immense pressure and rapid change.

Following our name change from SOLGM to Taituarā —Local Government Professionals Aotearoa in early 2021, we have also taken the opportunity to refresh the way we deliver our annual networking event – the Taituarā Conference (known previously as theSOLGM Annual Summit).

Things will look a bit different, but our aim remains the same – to deliver an inspiring learning and networking event for our members,  partners and friends from across the local government, central government and private sectors.

When: 14-15 September
Where: Ōtautahi Christchurch
