Symposium opened with mihi from Ngahiwi Apanui. Academy president, Phil Bishop provided update on the last 12 months and work between academy and Ako Aotearoa board.
Dinner in the evening enlivened by songs and skits from members and a quiz, hosted by James Patterson and Kelly Pender. Good to meet new members and several who were awardees several years ago but at the symposium for the first time. As usual, diverse viewpoints and good opportunity to find out what has been going on at other ITPs over the year.
