NZPI chair Andrea Harris will host a lunchtime conversation with members, reporting back on her learnings from the recent American Planning Association’s National Planning Congress in Minneapolis, and her self-described experience of ‘planning in the wild’.

Take this opportunity to meet the Chair of your Board and hear her insights into what it’s like to attend a conference of over 4000 planners, our international relationships with some of the other planning institutes, and key learnings she has taken away from Congress.


Andrea Harris is the Chair of the Board at Te Kōkiringa Taumata / New Zealand Planning Institute and Technical Principal – Planning at WSP. In the lead up to taking on her new role as Board Chair Andrea represented the NZPI Board at the recent National Planning Congress of the American Planning Association. A DSA recipient with over 30 years working in the planning profession, Andrea’s recent appointment as Chair follows many years of service to NZPI. She’s feels enormously privileged to have had the opportunity to connect with her international counterparts.
