NZPPS 2020 Conference Postponed to August 2021

Due to Covid-19, the NZPPS Executive has decided to postpone the 73rd NZPPS Conference and associated symposium until August 2021. Please note this change in your diaries.

The response from members submitting conference abstracts has been excellent this year with 58 abstracts received to date and a further 21 promised. Obviously, it is very disappointing that the corresponding presentations won’t be delivered this year but we look forward to these presentations at the 2021 conference instead.

To keep the Society active during these turbulent times, we encourage authors of conference abstracts to prepare a manuscript on their work and submit it to New Zealand Plant Protection as soon as possible at https://journal.nzpps.org/index.php/nzpp/about/submissions. All papers published in this year’s journal will automatically be eligible for presentation at the 2021 conference. We also welcome manuscript submissions from other members.

The Executive is in discussion about the best way to hold the NZPPS 2020 Annual General Meeting and will let members know in due course how we plan to proceed. 

Keep safe everyone.

 Kind regards,

Dr Eirian Jones

President, NZPPS
