dates for the conference Aoraki Iho Ake: Grounded – Aspiring – Connected are Sunday 29 August –
Tuesday 31 August, 2021.

Drawing inspiration from Aoraki, the most well-known maunga tupuna (ancestral mountain) of the Southern Alps, and
from the imagery of Iho Ake ‘from Earth to heaven and everything in between’, this conference seeks to create a panoramic
and inclusive view of speech-language therapy in New Zealand 2021, its local community and global partnerships.
