Online Auckland Breakfast Meeting a Hit
March 26, 2020 was the first day of the Level Four lockdown in response to the Covid-19 Pandemic. With New Zealand under a National State of Emergency, the Auckland Breakfast meeting was held virtually. Participants joined through the online forum Zoom, joined by "office assistants" and guests from the wider AMINZ membership.
Auckland network convenor, Kate Wiseman, interviewed AMINZ Executive Director Sue Wells. Sue has a background in crisis response through her time as a Christchurch City Councillor and the Biosecurity Response Manager for PotatoesNZ.
Further and regular online network events are being planned, as AMINZ members forecast the need for their services will likely increase as a result of this pandemic.
