“All the talent in the world won’t take you anywhere without your teammates.” – Anon


The Rugby World Cup isn’t the only big event this year – Community Networks Aotearoa has its Hui coming up! Once every two years we bring our members together to meet, share and inspire each other over two days in Wellington. Although primarily a members’ event, others working in the community and voluntary sector are also welcome to attend.

Following our survey in which we asked our members to tell us what they wanted, we have now finalised the programme for what promises to be an inspiring, invigorating and hopefully enjoyable event.

Day one will kick off with a World Café enabling delegates to talk about burning issues such as what’s on top in your region?; new ways of doing things; your local council – how supportive? –  in small groups. This will be followed by “Show Me the Money!” featuring a panel of experts looking at revenue streams in the not for profit sector. The second half of day one will consist of further opportunities to network and learn by rotating through expert-led groups examining topics such as “Charities Accountability – are you up with the play?”; “Not just hi viz and hardhats – non-profits in civil defence” and “Outcomes Reporting – what don’t you know?”  Finally we welcome academic fly half, Associate Professor Michael Macaulay who will speak about “Thriving Governanace Boards – what you need to know”.

The day will end with dinner accompanied by the sounds of local duo Sans Souci.

Day two will see us “pack down the scrum” with the business of our AGM followed by tea, birthday cake and candles as we celebrate CNA’s 40th! Finally we are proud to present our keynote speaker, journalist Dita de Boni, who will be known to many of our delegates for her column in the NZ Herald.  The Hui will close after lunch with a final opportunity to network and evaluate the two days.
