Kia ora Stephen,
Apologies for the delay in replying via the list - I see there've been lots of great suggestions.
We have recently begun delivering a monthly EADv2-compliant dataset (and also an EAC-CPF one), covering the metadata for Alexander Turnbull Library's unpublished collections.
The datasets are available on a CC4.0-BY license from the National Library of New Zealand's website - currently via ftp with a login but we hope to remove that barrier very soon.
We have a certain amount of expertise in-house as a result, and would be delighted to talk to your staff about it - though it would not be the same as having Michael Rush visit :).

Subject: Training in EAD (Auckland, New Zealand)
Can anyone point me to online or in-house training opportunities in EAD for archives staff at our institution? The University of Auckland Libraries and Learning Services recently implemented ArchivesSpace across all our repositories and some introductory training in EAD would be advantageous for staff who are new to the concepts.
