Is this not great news?
There is an existing peer organisation with the right kind of scope in NZ.
It might be good to be the sister organisation for Australia?
We are then building on an existing brand, collaborating to make it
stronger with our neighbours?
In terms of scope LA folks have done Australian legal and govt advocacy
but not so much that broader scope in NZ? LA events have been in NZ.
Perhaps TLA could partner with TLNZ to continue to do events in NZ?
It seems like a good idea to have a name which matches a successful
group doing the right things in NZ.
