2022 Leadership Exchange

Original Event Date:   February 28 - March 4, 2022
New Event Date:         October 2022
New Format:                Online with blend of regional/in-person hubs, as travel conditions allow


Dear IIMHL/IIDL members,

After careful consideration, New Zealand leaders and IIMHL/IIDL have decided to reschedule the 2022 IIMHL/IIDL Christchurch Leadership Exchange event to October 2022. Due to ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) developments and restrictions, and with the wellbeing and safety of our members and staff as our highest priority, we have agreed to move the event to later in the year and to shift to a predominantly online format.

We are committed to providing the experience our members and partners deserve in a safe environment and have decided to move the event to a virtual leadership exchange with potentially a blend of regional/in-person hubs, which would see leaders travelling within their continental region to meet, if travel conditions allow. We are proud that our exchanges and matches are more than presentations and speeches and serve as an opportunity for network-building, collaboration, and sharing best practice. We will continue to find ways of ensuring we achieve this in this new environment.

We will use the months we have gained due to the postponement to work with our regional colleagues to plan our activities and networking opportunities. We will keep you updated as things progress. The latest information will always be available at https://www.iimhl.com/2022-christchurch.

If you have already registered, we will be in touch to confirm that your registration and match preferences will be applied automatically to the rescheduled event.

We remain excited to welcome and see you at the 2022 exchange in its new format and will be in touch with more information on specific October dates in the coming weeks. Until we are next in touch, we thank you for your understanding and hope you stay safe and healthy.

Best wishes,
