E ngā mana, e ngā reo, e ngā karangatanga maha o ngā hau e whā, tēnā koutou katoa

He mihi tēnei ki a koutou o te whānau whānau i whakarauika mai i raro i te kaupapa nunui o Te Rau Herenga o Aotearoa 2019.

​The LIANZA 2021 Conference offers a wonderful opportunity to bring together people from across our diverse library and information sector.

The association’s aim is for the 2021 conference to meet the diverse professional needs of people engaged in collection, curation, preservation, archiving and sharing of information, tools and taonga that empower and connect our communities.

If you are keen to make this happen, we are seeking people keen to become part of the LIANZA 2021 Conference Committee. The committee will be led by a Conference Convenor supported by the Programmes Chair, Social Co-ordinator and Bi-cultural Convenor and two additional members. The committee is strongly supported by LIANZA Office and our professional conference organisers, Paardekooper and Associates. The conference convenor role can be shared by two co-convenors.

The conference committee will develop the LIANZA 2021 Conference vision and theme, create the programme and play a key role in the delivery of the conference. What issues do you think the library and information community need to focus on in 2021? Information democracy?

We are seeking passionate, energetic people with wide experience and understanding of library and information sector opportunities and issues and an awareness of national and international trends, willing to work as a team to deliver an outstanding conference. Prior conference organising experience is definitely not required, but your passion for the impact and contribution of the library and information sector is a must-have!
