Upcoming events

New Zealand air line pilots' association annual conference

19-21 June 2018, Rydges Hotel, Auckland

Keep up to date with the latest industry developments and challenges, and stay informed of the plans and progress your union representatives have made at NZALPA’s biggest event of the year. The three-day conference will include presentations, panel discussions and plenary and sub-committee sessions.

The conference is also a time to thank newly-retired members for their contribution to NZALPA, as well as recognise and honour individual outstanding contributions to aviation with the presentation of the prestigious Jim Collins Memorial Award, the Greg Vujcich Memorial Award and the Stewart Cameron Memorial Award.

It’s a great opportunity to meet or catchup with fellow pilots and air traffic controllers, discuss the important issues and have your say. A cocktail event is held on the evening of the first day, with invited guests including MPs and industry stakeholders, while there is a conference dinner on day two. NZALPA invites members from throughout New Zealand to come together for the Auckland-hosted conference – the peak decision-making event of the year.

Registration will be available online this year and will be accessible from April.

More information on discussion points and themes will be published in upcoming editions of Uplink and online.
