Our Board of Directors sets the strategic direction of Wakatū. The Board is made up of seven Directors plus one Associate Director, drawn from the Owners of the Incorporation.
Appointment on the Board is for a term of three years and is made via an election process by the Owners. Terms are staggered so that some Directors’ terms expire each year, although Directors may stand for re-election. This rotation allows for continuity and stability at Board level while providing for the democratic election of new Directors.
This year the terms of three Directors, Johnny McGregor, Miriana Stephens and Jeremy Banks, are set to expire at the 2018 Annual General Meeting. The AGM will be held in Nelson on Saturday 1 December 2018.
Johnny, Miriana and Jeremy are all eligible for re-election for a further term of office and all three have advised they will be standing for re-election
As in previous years, the rotation also provides the opportunity for new Directors to be nominated to the Board, and nominations are welcome.
All nominations must be made by an Owner in writing. You can re quest a nomination form by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or phoning +64 3 539 0811
On the nomination form, please include brief details about the nominee. The form must also include the signed approval of the nominee to his/her nomination.
