SASTA PD Workshop a success
In August, SASTA held their second two-day Professional Development workshop (6-7 August) in Wellington, fortunately just before another COVID-19 outbreak. Over 60 SASTA members travelled from around the country to attend, plus more were able to join in via a video conference link.
Guest speakers covered topics ranging from road safety strategy for Māori, evaluating on a budget and using data analysis for planning, to showcasing road safety campaigns from different regions. It was an intensive two days with positive feedback from delegates:
"Wow, that was a really successful two days that SASTA/NZTA ran, please pass on thanks from all of our team to all of your team. It was a hugely valuable two days and was really well run. There was a really good balance of topics & time to connect."
"Really appreciate all the hard work the exec team do on things like this, which they somehow fit around busy lives." - Kirsty Barr, Kairuruku, Travel Choice Coordinator, Greater Wellington Te Pane Matua Taiao.
Special thanks to Trish Rudolph and Marceli Davidson, Waka Kotahi’s Relationships Road Safety team, and Anna Blomquist, Transport Safety Education, WCC who were instrumental in making the event a great success.
