Something to go to in Wellington

Transparency International New Zealand (TINZ) and VUW's Institute of Policy Studies are holding a one-day symposium next month on The Funding of Political Parties and Election Campaigns [PDF]. Speakers include Dr paul Harris (former head of the Electoral Commission), Dr Helen Catt (current head of the Electoral Commission), Raymond Miller, Andrew Geddis and Steven Price, as well as a couple of MPs and a slew of party presidents. Sounds like its well worth going to.

When: Friday, 15 June, 9:00 - 16:00
Where: Council chamber, Hunter Building, VUW, Wellington (the big old building at the top of the hill)
How much: Free!
