Event description


The Educate Plus New Zealand Chapter is thrilled to invite you to our Summit taking place on Thursday, 31 August at Christ's College, Christchurch and on Friday, 1 September at Lincoln University, Lincoln.

The conference offers an incredible opportunity for professional development and learning, and immense value for all those working in any aspect of educational advancement including: fundraising and development, admissions and enrolment, marketing and communications, alumni relations and community engagement, across all the Primary, Secondary and Tertiary education sectors of our schools and universities.

The theme of this year's Summit is NEXUS and we hope you use this opportunity to connect and collaborate with your peers across New Zealand and be Stronger Together.

This conference has something for everyone, so bring your whole team. It's a chance to come together to learn and network and be inspired by the experiences that your peers and colleagues have created, led and celebrated!
