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 on 8 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.
