Input from members and community to inform our 2020 strategic planning
The Assistive Technology Alliance New Zealand (ATANZ) is meeting to update our strategic plan. We would love your input to guide us as we plan for the future.

Our current vision is for every New Zealander who needs assistive technology to have access to excellent services and support.

Our current mission is to promote assistive technology by ensuring quality assistive technology service provision through the establishment and monitoring of best practice assistive technology standards.

Our most recent strategic plan (2016) can be read here -

Our mission of ATANZ extends beyond supporting our members, and thus we are equally open to feedback and suggestions from users, therapists, and the many people and organisations we collaborate with.

Please let us know your thoughts by 28 July at 6 pm.
