Annual Conference Reports and Papers

Regional Secretaries need to notify national office of the names of all delegates as soon as they are known.  Everyone planning to attend Annual Conference must complete a registration form.  Registration forms can be found below.  Once registration forms are received, travel and accommodation bookings will be made.  Registrations will close at 5pm on Monday 19 September.


An itinerary will be forwarded to delegates as soon as the bookings are made.  Delegates are asked not to request changes to their itinerary (unless absolutely necessary) as changes are likely to incur additional charges and these may be passed on to them.  Any changes will require the authorisation of the DGS Policy.

Delegates from the Wellington, Hutt Valley, Wairarapa and Manawatū-Whanganui regions should travel by train, bus or car.  Delegates from these regions travelling to conference by car are requested to car-share wherever possible.  Those who bring their own car will be reimbursed at 82c per km.

Delegates from regions other than Wellington, Hutt Valley, Wairarapa and Manawatū-Whanganui, who are entitled to travel by air but choose to drive, are reimbursed either 82c per km or the average cost of a return airfare, whichever is the cheaper.


This year PPTA will cover the cost of accommodation in single rooms for Tuesday and Wednesday nights. There are a limited number of rooms available at the Brentwood Hotel and delegates will be accommodated not only at the hotel but also at hotels and motels close to the venue.

Extra nights will be arranged for attendees only if airline schedules or the distance from their home to their nearest airport makes it necessary to arrive earlier or stay longer.


PPTA covers the cost of a continental breakfast.  If people wish to have a cooked breakfast they must pay the additional $5.00 per breakfast when they check out.


Confirmation of registration will be emailed to delegates, once the registration form is received and processed.  This will also include any travel and accommodation arranged.

Delegates are asked to contact national office if they do not receive confirmation of their registration within one week of sending in the registration form.
