Last chance to join record Conference numbers


Record numbers of delegates will be attending the 2007 Registered Master Builders conference in New Plymouth later this month — and there’s still time for members to register.

The conference is running from April 19 to 22, with a variety of speakers on the programme including Ministers of Parliament, New Zealand’s top economists and business people, as well as some “true blue” kiwi personalities.

Registered Master Builders Federation chief executive Pieter Burghout says he is excited about the 2007 conference, and he’s sure members will be inspired and entertained with the line up of speakers, workshops and social events on the programme.

In keeping with the conference’s theme, “Scaling New Heights”, the Minister of Building and Construction Clayton Cosgrove will open the conference with the latest developments in builder licensing.

National Party’s opposing Minister Dr Nick Smith will be talking about where the National Party sees the building industry heading over the next few years.
Celebrity speakers including Crown Prosecutor Simon Moore, athlete Mark Inglis and attitude doctor Dr Tom Mulholland promise to provide thought-provoking, heartfelt and humorous sessions.

As well as speakers there will be a range of business workshops covering subjects including employment, technology and how to make green building a reality.
It won’t be all hard work, with happy hours scheduled after conference sessions that will allow delegates to catch up and relax before they head off to the various planned dinners.

Mr Burghout says RMBF conferences are legendary among members who attend and believe “once you go to one you will want to keep coming back for more”.
“We encourage all our members to get to New Plymouth in April to hear first-hand some stimulating, challenging and fresh perspectives about what’s in store for the construction sector over the next few years,” Mr Burghout says.
