ITP news in brief 6th September

Victoria MacLennan. 06 September 2022, 10:45 pm

Kia Ora Koutou ITP members, I am 90% confident the cold like symptoms that meant I was too tired to finish writing this post up last night is actually Covid - this is my first experience so lets see how it goes. For that reason this really is an ITP news in brief today.

Please remember to fill in the latest "How do we feel survey" if you haven’t already - "How do we feel about our current jobs". One early insight worth sharing is that 36% of us are actively looking for another job right now and 42% are keeping an eye on the market - meaning that only 22% of our workforce are really committed to their current role! 

Please share the survey with your friends and colleagues so we can collectively understand the sentiments and experiences of our wider digital technology workforce. 
Noho ora mai (stay well) Vic

Meet 13 awesome members of the Digital Technology Community 

As a membership based organisation ITP is governed by a constitution and bylaws and overseen by a national board, while regionally activities are organised by branch committees. We are also a not-for-profit incorporated society so there is a complex set of rules to navigate as a society.

Our AGM is coming up next week which includes electing new board and committee members. So last week I was lucky enough to interview all of the amazing people nominated for our national board.

Even if you’re not an ITP member this is a fabulous opportunity to get to know members of our community who are really making a difference. Each of these is 5-10 minutes long.

Next week (Covid allowing) I will start recording our new podcast designed to shine a light on other amazing people within the digital technology community, hearing their stories, pathways into the industry and experiences now they are here. 

You can watch / listen to the short interviews of 13 fascinating members of our community here (in the order I recorded them) - and if you are an ITP member remember to watch these before you vote:

Worth a read or a listen

Finally - like many of you I was saddened to read about the passing of Mark Denvir, director of ICT at Auckland Council. I met Mark on a number of occasions over the years. My thoughts are with his whānau at this time.
