Forums and seminars

We may be coming to your region!

As part of our public affairs and education outreach programme, the Office of the Privacy Commissioner organises visits by our staff to meet with people and organisations in regional centres.

These are very useful engagements that enable our people to hear concerns from communities and allow us to reach audiences that we would not otherwise.

We often coordinate with a partner organisation, such as a chamber of commerce, or a community law centre, to assist in setting up public presentations or clinics in the centres.

If you want us to visit your regional centre, contact us by emailing enquiries@privacy.org.nz.

Here's a schedule of visits we are proposing to undertake in 2017 (subject to change):






Nelson / Blenheim


Hawkes Bay or Wanganui


Whakatane / Opotiki


Hamilton / Taupo / Tokoroa
