NZCIS is a nationwide initiative with events and people all around the country. Below is a list of people and events organised into centres. If you find yourself outside these centres make sure you still sign up as many of the events are live streamed for everyone to participate in. If you are wanting to run a small group programme in your region feel free to request resources or contact us if you want support.

Students and staff from all centres are warmly welcome to the September conference. Student scholarships will be available.
