Western Region / New Zealand Exchange

The IPPS New Zealand region is seeking applications for its exchange to the IPPS Western region which covers the West Coast of the United States and Canada.

“We’re looking for someone to travel to the Western Region to represent IPPS New Zealand and seek and share with” says Philip Smith, the Exchange coordinator for IPPS New Zealand. The exchange will involve several weeks in the Western region including staying with host families, visiting nurseries, assisting in plant production and attending the region’s IPPS conference. 

The scholarship is open to any IPPS member 21 or over, but is aimed more at younger members in the early stages of their careers and is a good incentive for people to join IPPS – see Join IPPS for membership application details.

In return, if you are the successful applicant, you will be required to share your knowledge and experiences with IPPS members in New Zealand with a presentation at the annual conference and an article in the newsletter.

Contact Philip Smith (07) 378 5450 or email philip@tauponativeplant.co.nz for further information.
