PSA Youth Leaders Hui – 7-9 August

Next month we will be calling for expressions of interest for the PSA Youth Leaders Hui.

This is scheduled for 7-9 August (3 days, including a weekend), and will be taking place at a fabulous eco retreat in Huntly that we’ve fully booked.

The theme of this year’s hui is PSA Youth and the Future of Work.  We will take some time to consider the future of work in New Zealand and in our sectors, and PSAY’s role in influencing this.  Participants will also contribute to network planning (discussing network priorities and activities for the year ahead), think about new ways of doing things (including reviewing the PSA Youth rules and structure), and elect new network convenors.  Members will be given the opportunity to lead their own workshops and will have quality time to network with other young union leaders. 

We will be funding approximately 40 young PSA leaders to attend.  This event is for committed PSAY activists – people who have demonstrated leadership in the network, whether through interest in an elected role or active participation in network activities. 

We are in the initial stages of planning content for the hui, and would love to hear your suggestions for discussion topics, workshops, speakers and the like.  We’d love to hear whether you have any workshops you’d like to run yourself, or are able to help organise, or if you’re interested in assisting more generally with hui planning.  Please email with your thoughts. 

And be sure to watch out for an invite to express your interest next month!
