Nominations for two positions on our Governing Board are now open. Our Board sets Engineering New Zealand’s strategy and monitors performance. Being on the Board is a chance to give back to the profession and make a difference.

Nominations close 9am Monday 11 February, with the election held electronically from 18 February to 15 March. The election will also cover the Senior Office Holder positions of President, Deputy President and Vice-President, which are also open for nomination. The successful candidates will be announced at our AGM in Wellington on 29 March. 

What makes a good board? 

The only prerequisite for becoming a Board member is being a financial member of Engineering New Zealand. If you are considering standing, take a look at our strategy and the profiles of our current Board members. Think about what you might add to that mix if you took up this governance role. 

A good board debates issues from a range of perspectives. It needs a mix of strengths, with each director contributing something unique and valuable to the culture and vision of the board. Board members also bring their individual experience and networks. Having a diverse board that reflects the range of our membership means we capture a range of viewpoints and make better decisions. This means representing a range of disciplines, ages and career stages – as well as being diverse in terms of gender and ethnicity.
