A Ngā Aho Whakaari Special General Meeting has been called to be held on the 22nd February 2021 at 5:30pm at the St Columba Centre, 40 Vermont Street, Ponsonby. The purpose of this hui is to discuss amendments to be made to the Constitution, present the Financial Report and elect Board members.

Nominations for positions on the NAW Board for the 2021/22 year are now open as we currently have three vacancies to fill with a closing date of 7th February 2021 for nomination forms to be received by the NAW office.

The members leaving are Christina Asher and Louisa Tipene Opetaia, with a previous vacancy that was yet to be filled.

The following current Board Members will be standing again for re-election:

4. Sharon Hawke
5. Michele Bristow
6. Mia Marama Henry-Tierne

Board members are elected to their position for a two-year period. The role of a Board member is to lead the organisation through setting of strategic policy, ensuring financial viability and supporting the Executive Director to manage the operations of the organisation. Board members are required to attend six board meetings per year (by phone or Zoom if outside the meeting centre but in person on at least two occasions during the year), unless extraordinary circumstances do not allow and the Executive Director/Office must be advised in advance. Board members may be required to represent the organisation publically and to assist operational delivery, policy work and other matters from time to time.

Please note the following:

Only full NAW members are eligible to vote for and/or take up a Board position.

All nominations must be signed by a nominator and seconder, as well as by the nominee. Nominees can nominate themselves and simply require a seconder’s signature.
All nominations must be accompanied by a short statement (of no longer than 300 words) setting out the credentials and objectives of the nominee for the Board.
