“I would like to acknowledge our Board members for their ongoing commitment of time and effort in providing their esteemed leadership. I would also like to thank our members who enable us to continue to speak for all users of digital technology in Aotearoa New Zealand,” says Craig Young, CEO of TUANZ.

“We want to help ensure New Zealand makes the most of the digitally connected world. Our vision is for New Zealand to be in the top 10 digital ready nations by 2030.”

“Earlier this month we also celebrated the one year anniversary of the valuable initiative Digital Boost which TUANZ supports through the Digital Boost Alliance. The Digital Boost Alliance is a joint public-private initiative that supports the uptake of digital tools for small businesses, communities, and individuals. Working together our members are helping drive digital acceleration in Aotearoa.”

Despite the challenges of the pandemic, TUANZ’s events programme has returned with strength, including its flagship conferences TechUsers Day 2022 and the Rural Connectivity Symposium. Throughout New Zealand the Future Leaders in Technology (FLINT) teams host regular events to connect and empower those who aspire to be the leaders of New Zealand’s digital future.
