Also, we're halfway through our roadshow across NZ giving an update on ITP's strategy and operations - heading down south next!

Quick ITP update and upcoming events

[From Tuesday] I met recently with digital minister Hon David Clark to talk through many of the challenges facing the digital and tech sector, including the skills pathway work we're undertaking as part of the Transformation Plan. It was a good discussion and will lead to some good work.

Also, don't forget, nominations are open for the NZ Excellence in IT Awards currently! The EXes unashamedly celebrate the people and teams who make tech work in our sector. Through these awards, we aim to find the people that really are making a difference rather than just the company they work for. But we need your help finding them!

Nominations also open for ITP Branch Committees today, and I hope you're registered for our update event in a few weeks - look forward to seeing you there!
