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.

“Last year, Patrick Watt travelled to California as the recipient of the exchange and had a great time” says Lindsey Hatch, the exchange co-ordinator for the IPPS New Zealand Region. “We’re now looking for applicants for this year’s exchange which will include attendance at the Western Region’s conference in Wilsonville, Oregon from October 17th – 20th. The successful applicant will fly into Vancouver, Canada and out of Portland.

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 www.ipps.org.nz for details and a membership form.

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.

An application form is available below  or contact Lindsey Hatch 09 238 9129 or email hatch.clan@xtra.co.nz for further information.

Applications close 31st May 2017.
