Welcome

This year promises to be a unique and memorable event as the Society celebrates its 50th annual meeting. The Conference will be hosted in Nelson from the 10th-14th December 2018.


Celebrating 50 years, the theme of the Conference is “Ka mua, ka muri: Looking back, moving forward”, and the programme will include plenary speaker presentations as well as special and contributed sessions, poster displays, a diverse array of exhibits, networking functions, and field trips that showcase Nelson’s unique river environments and attractions.


We look forward to seeing you in Nelson this December!
