NZATD’s Three Pillars – Visibility, Value and Viability

The key to NZATD’s strategy going forward is a focus on our three pillars of Visibility, Value and Viability:

NZATD Visibility

VISIBILITY– ensuring our members know what we are achieving; prospective members know we are here; employers know where to come; the wider community are eager to hear our voice and listen to what we say.


VALUE – ensuring our members appreciate their membership;
employers recognise the added value that employing a member will bring; being recognised by the wide community for the value that comes from the strength and experience of a united Association of learning professionals.

NZATD Viability

VIABILITY – ensuring longer term sustainability for our Association through prudent governance and management; building a reputation of integrity and professionalism that endures beyond any individual; leaving a strong legacy for those who will come after us.
