Update 17th March: Due to the cancellation of the IPPS Western Region conference due to Covid-19 virus, the IPPS New Zealand Region will not be sending someone to the Western Region  for the foreseeable future

The IPPS New Zealand Region is seeking applications for our 2020 exchange to the IPPS Western Region which covers the West Coast of the United States and Canada. 

“In 2019, Andrew Anderson traveled to the IPPS Western Region as the recipient of the exchange and had a great time” says Jill Reader, the exchange co-ordinator for the IPPS New Zealand Region. “We’re now looking for applicants for the 2020 exchange which will include attendance at the Western Region’s conference in Bellingham, Washington from June 22nd - 27th 2020. The Western Region is also hosting the International tour so there will be a number of international delegates in attendance.
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. Travel (including travel insurance), conference, and accommodation costs are covered
