CEO Forum

In August 2010 NZPI initiated a CEO's Forum made up of the following sister institutes and organisations: NZILA, NZIA, RMLA, IPENZ, NZIS and LGNZ.

At its November meeting the CEO's Forum agreed that a Technical Taskforce be established to provide government with an independent and coordinated technical review of the lessons to be learnt from the Canterbury earthquake.

Towards that end it was agreed that the following institutes/organisations be invited to join a technical taskforce:

  • Geotech Society
  • Earthquake Society
  • GNS Science
  • IPENZ
  • NZIA
  • NZILA
  • NZIS
  • RMLA
  • NZPI


A Terms of Reference has been drafted to underpin the work of the taskforce and it is expected that the final review of the Taskforce will be endorsed by the various institutes/organisations involved and provided to appropriate Ministers, Government Departments and local authorities.
