Canterbury Branch Chair report 2019

  • It was a year of mixed attendance for NZIC Canterbury Branch events, with some being extremely popular and successful (e.g. Dr Tom Bennett’s talk; the World Meteorological Day talk in combination with NZIP), but several events lacked the anticipated attendance levels.
  • Jan plans to circulate a feedback quiz in the New Year to determine what kinds of events members actually want to go. Some key considerations are:
    • Do people want talks to take place during the normal department seminar time?
    • How many events do people want each year?
