Nominations are now open for @Heart’s board of directors
Here’s your opportunity to make a real contribution to @Heart. Each year, three Director’s seats are up for election; and this year we’re accepting nominations from the Upper North Island, Upper South Island and Lower South Island regions. If you want to provide strategic and governance skills to @Heart, we’d like to hear from you.
@Heart’s Board of Directors consists of six (6) Directors elected by the membership and four (4) Directors appointed by the Board. The elected Directors must be Category 1 members (as defined by the Constitution) and serve two-year terms. They may serve for no more than four (4) consecutive terms. These Directors represent each of our five regions: two from Upper North Island and one each from Central North Island (NI), Lower NI, Upper South Island (SI), and Lower SI.
The elected Directors’ terms are staggered such that three (3) Directors are elected each year. As noted above, the positions up for election at the AGM on 17th May 2014 are Upper North Island (1 of 2 positions), Upper South Island and Lower South Island. If you are interested in serving as a Director of @Heart and you are a Category 1 member living in one of these three regions, or if you would like to nominate someone to serve on the Board, please refer to the following documents: Constitution, Nomination Form, and Roles and Responsibilities of a Board Member, Regional Map (NI), Regional Map (SI).
Nomination forms, duly signed by the nominee and two nominators, who are themselves Category 1 members from the selected region, must be received by the Secretary to the Board no later than 5:00pm on Wednesday, 2nd April 2014. Please see the Nomination Form for notification details.
