Conference Volunteers
Share |


Each year, HiNZ assembles a team of conference volunteers to assist with tasks during the conference, such as:

  • Putting inserts into delegate bags on the day prior to the conference (Tue 31 October).
  • Assisting the registration desk on Wed 1 November and Thu 2 November, prior to the first session.
  • Assisting the session facilitators (volunteers are allocated to specific rooms for a few sessions each)
  • Coordinating speaker gifts at the end of a session.
  • Doing microphone running for audience members during question time.
  • And other similar tasks...

In return, each volunteer gets to go to the 3-day conference for free. Plus they get access to the conference webcast library so they can view any sessions they missed by being allocated to a specific room for some sessions.


Each HiNZ Conference Volunteer gets a free registration worth $998!

  • Free 3 day registration on 1-3 November to HiNZ Conference in Rotorua
  • Full access to sessions across both conferences (HiNZ and NZ Nursing Informatics)
