Kia ora koutou katoa. You are invited to join our La Leche League New Zealand 2016 conference and be involved in one of the first celebrations in our 60th anniversary of La Leche League International.

Breastfeeding: Building a Legacy is the theme for the anniversary year. It begins at our conference in New Zealand and runs worldwide to 30 Sept 2017. We would be delighted to have your company as we acknowledge this important milestone in breastfeeding support.

At the La Leche League NZ Shop you can register and order meals for yourself and any family members accompanying you. Once you've registered and paid you will be emailed a form to provide further details - which concurrent sessions you would like to attend, who the meals are for, any special dietary requirements, etc.
