Reflections on NZIEC 2017
Terry McGrath, Acting President, ISANA NZ
NZIEC 2017, held on 22-23 August, was an excellent and a very well-organised conference with over 700 delegates drawn from all areas of international education in New Zealand. 500 or so of those delegates connected with ISANA NZ in some way, mostly through attending a breakout session but also with discussions at the booth and with the ISANA executive committee and association members present in the conference. A lot of remarks were given in passing about the great backdrop picture we had chosen for our booth - happy international students enjoying the experience of study in NZ - which contrasted greatly with the information laden backdrops in many other booths.
