Kia ora koutou,
Thank you for reading DINZ’s first newsletter for 2022! 2021 finished in a whirl of activity as we delivered both our written and oral submissions to the Select Committee regarding the draft Digital Identity Services Trust Framework Bill and held our annual meeting and elections for the Executive Council for 2022. We welcomed Angela Gill and Paul Platen (as Chair) and farewelled Janelle Riki-Waaka, Jane Retimana, John Evans and invited-independent Tamāra Al-Salim, thanking them for their outstanding service. Further announcements will be made regarding those filling the three seats that became vacant after the annual election cycle.
2022 looks set to be even busier than 2021 as DINZ embarks on further keystone research and two additional working groups. One working group examines digital identity challenges in marginalised communities, the other is seeking feedback on and finalising DINZ’s Statement of Intent regarding Te Tiriti o Waitangi with its associated action plan. We are also growing the existing working group that supports its identity service provider members on the operational rules aspects of the Trust Framework. And it goes without saying that we remain closely involved with making the Digital Trust Hui Taumata simply the best digital identity event in Australasia. More details of DINZ’s plans for 2022 will be released as they are confirmed by the Executive Council.
Ngā Mihi nui,
Colin and the DINZ Executive Council
