Conferences and Workshops
In addition to the Annual Conference, NZHS generally runs 2 workshops a year, often in association with other groups or organisations. Workshops are a great way of sharing knowledge and discussing current hydrological issues outside the NZHS annual conference. Topics have included coastal aquifer management, hydrology and wetlands, hydrological archives, etc.
NZHS workshops are organised when members identify a need for a forum. The need could include general dissemination of information, the discussion of topical issues and/or the need to find solutions to hydrology-related problems. Financial support is available (subject to Executive approval) to NZHS members who require assistance to develop and/or run a workshop.
If you wish to suggest a topic, run a workshop, or need more information, please contact the Society administration.
Workshops provide a unique opportunity for field hydrologists and industry suppliers to network, learn from each other and promote their products to representatives from all over New Zealand. More specifically, we encourage and anticipate participation from leading local government, crown research agencies, water utility providers, hydropower generators, private industry groups and individuals. All practitioners with an interest in the profession of field hydrology are welcome. It is an opportunity for field hydrologists to gather and learn more about their profession as well as share knowledge and experiences from their working environment or projects they may be involved with other field hydrologists and other interested professionals.
