I t was great to see so many familiar faces and meet new ones at NETS2013 aboard the train and at Shantytown. It is pleasing to see that it was a very well-supported get-together. I hope you all learned about some of the biosecurity challenges of Canterbury and the Coast while enjoying the scenery along the way, particularly the bus trip across Arthurs Pass which was a bonus we hadn’t expected.

Unfortunately there is never enough time to meet everyone.

In this issue you will find a summary of the three very busy days. There is never enough space to recognise all the presentations. There were around seventy.

Summaries of the presentations are in the conference handbook which is also on the Institute website.

I hope you find plenty of interest in this issue. As usual thank you all for your contributions and feedback.
