NZIIP 2021: Participation, Partnerships, and Protection in the Intelligence Profession
The NZIIP Annual Conference 2021 will be held on the 14th of October, 2021, at the Tiakiwai Conference Centre at the National Library, Wellington.
Registrations open at 8:30 am, with a 9:00 am conference start.
The NZIIP year started out with a strategic planning day resulting in a new vision of creating a connected and skilled intelligence community to enable excellence for people in the intelligence profession. From this, NZIIP’s new mission has become to grow and connect the intelligence professional and profession through participation, partnerships, and protection.
This year’s conference focuses on this theme throughout, with a more interactive event involving panel discussions and working groups. The event will start with a discussion of the national security system and intelligence sector to establish where we currently are.
