The conference is taking place at the Air Force Museum in Christchurch. Wednesday 28th October will be a full day of topics on this subject. The conference dinner will take place on the Wednesday evening in central Christchurch. Thursday 29th focuses on disaster preparedness and other general topics, followed by the AGM with a post reception drinks session again in central Christchurch that evening.
