AIMA has a long and vibrant history in New Zealand. AIMA NZ is run by a New Zealand-based management committee under the auspices of AIMA Australia. This committee is chaired by AIMA Vice President, Dr. Tim Ewer. We are currently working to constitute AIMA NZ as a separate legal entity.
Our New Zealand activities include a major conference in Auckland each year. The conference is a highlight of the year for the New Zealand integrative medicine community and a fabulous occasion to learn the latest and to meet and socialize with colleagues.
For 2021, we are excited to be offering a fully virtual conference, the 2021 AIMA Virtual Conference will be held over the weekend on 27-28 March entirely online. Not only will a virtual conference offer a safe and practical way to host the event during the COVID-19 pandemic, but it also offers an incredible opportunity to extend our audience, introduce new and exciting ways to interact, and provide flexibility for those under COVID restrictions to participate. To get an idea of what our conference usually consists of, take a look at what we did for 2020, it was a huge success!
AIMA PRE-CONFERENCE RETREAT 2020
In 2020, we also held a Pre-Conference Retreat based around the topic “Healing, ourselves and the planet” from 6pm Wednesday 4th March to 5pm Friday 6th March at the beautiful Bella Rakha Retreat Centre in Oratia, Auckland. For full information on what was involved, click HERE. Please note, we will not be offering a pre-conference retreat in 2021.
AUCKLAND MONTHLY MEETINGS
Our regular Auckland Monthly Meetings were quickly put on hold in 2020 due to restrictions on gatherings during the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope to get these back up and running as soon as it is possible. These popular monthly catch-ups offer the chance to learn about a new topic of interest in the integrative medicine field as well as the opportunity to meet and network with like-minded practitioners in an informal setting. Take a look at what we’ve done in the past here. We’ll notify you as soon as these are re-launched. Make sure you’re on our mailing list!
