Hello and welcome Nola! I hope you're enjoying the Intersect experience so far ... There are some useful tips to read here if you're wondering how to begin. Use Intersect in whatever way that suits you - and just let me know if there's anyway I can help.
You may be interested in joining the Manawatu Intersectors group to keep in touch with what's happening in the area... It's new and still small but could grow into a great resource.
