Board Elections – call for nominations

Board Elections – call for nominations

With our AGM just three months away, it’s that time of year again when we call for nominations for the Cooperative Business New Zealand board of directors.

Following the resignation of Karen Kenny who has moved to Australia and with Deputy Chair David Shaw retiring after six years’ excellent service, there are two positions available this year.

Chair Jonathan Lee and current directors Christine Burr, Kim DeGarnham, Murray Jagger and Blue Read (independent) will remain on the board to add valuable experience and continuity.

Nominations officially open on 13th May and will close six weeks later on Friday, 24th June. If there are more than two nominations, an election will be held. A voting pack, including information about the candidates, will be sent to all members on 30th June.

Meanwhile, here’s the Voting Nomination Form for members to complete and return to Chief Executive/Returning Officer, Craig Presland.

Were there to be an election, voting would close on Monday, 1st August and the results officially declared at our AGM on Wednesday, 10th August.

For more information, please contact Craig.
