The next stop on our regional alumni gatherings was Hamilton in early November. Sina and Judy hosted alumni from the Waikato and Bay of Plenty regions. We were delighted to connect with alumni from the 2006 to 2009 years and find out what they are doing and to hear their reflections on the impact on them of the Leadership NZ Programme many years down the track. It was also great for alumni to meet each other, some for the first time. All are busy and engaged with their communities.
