Historical Conference Information

A special invitation…

Kia ora koutou, I hope you are looking forward to NASDAP 2023 as much as I am!  The last few years of Covid drag seem to, hopefully, be moving behind us.  We know there is much to be done to move things forward for our staff and learners, but this conference is a chance to network; to find out what others have been doing; to find the courage to make some brave changes!  Let’s meet at the new Tākina conference centre in Wellington… 

For the curious, courageous, change-makers!  


Lisa White, NASDAP President

National Association of Secondary Deputy & Assistant Principals
