On 11 March 2022 the Northern Branch hosted its first branch meeting for 2022. Whilst the meeting was held online due to COVID-19 restrictions, it was a fantastic opportunity to share knowledge and catch up. Thank you to all our presenters, Waikato District Council for sponsoring and supporting the event and to everyone who attended. Thank you also to Cushla Anich for organising and hosting the meeting and to Zinab Al-Khaleefa for helping present the speakers.
