The Executive would like to advise all members and sponsors that due to the devastating earthquake that affected Christchurch on 22nd February 2011, the dates, venue and city hosting the conference have unfortunately and regretfully needed to be changed. The dates for CASANZ Conference 2011 have been changed to Sunday 31 July (commencing at 1.00pm) to Tuesday 2 August (concluding at 5.00pm), and the venue has moved to SkyCity, Auckland.

The New Zealand Branch of the Clean Air Society of Australia and New Zealand announces that the 20th CASANZ Conference will now be held in Auckland July 30 - Aug 2, 2011.  We regret greatly the need to move the conference venue and date, however circumstances in Christchurch post-earthquake are such that it would not be possible to host the conference in that city.  The Local Organising Committee, of whom many are based in Christchurch, are still committed to putting on a great conference for our delegates, and we are trying to retain as much of the flavor of our originally planned Christchurch event as we can. 
At the 2011 CASANZ conference, we welcome your papers and encourage debate about the basics of understanding and managing health effects due to air quality, and how we achieve balance between these health issues and the sometimes conflicting demands of local, regional and global air quality issues, nuisance avoidance, and practical solutions.
Air Quality: A Healthy Balance.  Avoiding adverse effects on health due to air quality is a foremost responsibility of all people involved in air quality science and engineering.  How are we defining, measuring, assessing and managing these health effects?  And does a focus on health effects take away from other pressures to manage nuisance effects, and global effects such as greenhouse gas emissions.  The conference programme, SIG workshops and training day are currently being finalised. The Training Course will be held on Saturday prior to conference and the SIG's will run half day workshops on Sunday.
We are delighted that all of our keynote speakers, as well as the Minister for the Environment Hon Dr Nick Smith, have been able to change their travel plans and commitments to accommodate our change of conference dates.
Auckland is a fantastic conference destination and we encourage you to take the opportunity and extend your stay. SkyCity Convention Centre is located in downtown Auckland, is purpose built with many hotels and apartments within easy walking distance.
On behalf of the Conference Organising Committee, I invite you to join us to consider the challenges and solutions of Air Quality: A Healthy Balance.
