OSCAR Meetup 2021

Otahuhu Pool & Leisure Centre, 30 Mason Ave, Otahuhu, Auckland

$60-00 per person (includes morning tea on arrival and lunch)

This is an opportunity for OSCAR managers, owners and senior supervisors to connect and share knowledge and experience on a very practical level.  This will be a ‘no frills’ event, so none of the formalities that you might see at a full-blown conference. There will be a programme of 50-minute sessions comprising short presentations by OSCAR providers on specified topics, followed by questions, discussion and networking within each session group. Some  broad topics are listed below. We expect these to firm up into more specific topics once we confirm all our speakers.

We expect the event to fill up - register your interest now. (Scroll down for the booking form.) We don't require any payment at this stage.

- We will be registering 200 people in total (based on venue capacity).
- Places will be limited to two people per programme site: owners/service managers/ senior supervisors , to a maximum of 4 people from any one organisation. (May be subject to review depending on initial bookings).
