Abstract: Didn’t we just scrape in with the August NZIF conference in Masterton! As we were descending off the field trip buses in the pouring rain on the last day of our conference, word had seeped out that COVID was back. Phones were ringing, attendees rushed for cars and to make flights, and by midnight of that day we were back in lockdown. How lucky were we? I have been to many NZIF conferences over the years. My first was in 1997, but this one was hard to beat for the palpable ‘band camp’ sense of excitement. Everyone was happy just to be out of their homes and offices. This sense of camaraderie cemented what I think our sector has been needing for some time – some genuine human connection.
