Call for nominations for Appointed Board Members

Notice is hereby given of the call for nominations for Appointed Board Members.

The closing date for nominations is Tuesday, 3 August 2021 at 4.00 pm.

Elected Board members will be appointing three Appointed Board Members. The Board’s Appointments Committee is responsible for managing the process of election and appointment of Board members.

The Board needs a good combination of background experience, skills, qualifications and personal qualities to provide the foundation of a high-performing Board. To assist with this, the Board has adopted a Core Competency Framework that will be utilised as well as the Board’s strategic pillars in determining who to appoint to the Board. Links to the Core Competency Framework and the Board’s Strategic Pillars can be found below.

The nominee, proposer and seconder involved in the process of nominating a person for a position on the Water New Zealand Board must be financial members of the Association as at the closing date of nominations.

There will be no call for nominations for Elected Board Members for 2021. This is due to changes to the Constitution in 2020 whereby the Board shall be constituted of four elected (previously six) and four appointed (previously two co-opted) Board members. There will be five elected Board members whose terms continue after this AGM, including the President-elect. As current members’ terms expire, the number will reduce to less than four and an election will then be held.
