Welcome

The Manawatu Branch of the New Zealand Geographical Society has the pleasure of inviting geographers to the biennial conference of the Society in December 2012. In a break from tradition the conference this year will be held for the first time at Napier’s War Memorial Conference Centre. The theme for this year’s conference is ‘Connecting Landscapes’ and we encourage geographers of all stripes to participate in Napier.

The conference is open to geographers and those working in allied fields anywhere in the world, and we especially encourage graduate students as well as established faculty to attend and present their work.
