Here’s your chance to have your say!

The WasteMINZ Board is elected by our members to provide governance for WasteMINZ and to determine its strategies and values as well as monitoring the organisation’s performance.

The Board consists of six WasteMINZ financial members who are elected for a term of two years. Three of the six elected Board members complete their two-year terms at alternate Annual General Meetings.

This year the following board members will have completed their two-year term:

  • John Cocks
  • Simonne Eldridge
  • Darren Patterson (Deputy Chair)

These board members are eligible for re-election. The remaining three Board members Paul Bishop (Chair), John Dragicevich and  Dominic Salmon complete their two year term of office in October 2013.

Being an effective board member requires a significant time commitment; therefore it is essential that prospective board members have the time available to dedicate to WasteMINZ work.  This will usually involve four board meetings a year – together with other WasteMINZ business which is generally conducted by electronic means.

Nomination Process: Any financial member may nominate any other financial member(s) for election to the Board; however membership for both parties must be current.

Board nominations are to be submitted electronically by clicking here.

Nominations must be received by WasteMINZ no later than 5pm Wednesday 5 September 2012.

Voting: Voting will be via post and voting papers will be sent to all financial members no later than Monday 17 September 2012. Closing date for receipt of voting papers will be Monday 8 October 2012.

 Annual General Meeting: The elected board members will be announced at the 24th WasteMINZ Annual General Meeting which will be held on Wednesday 17 October at the WasteMINZ Conference and Trade Exhibition in Hamilton.

The election of Board members is extremely important, and we would urge you to carefully consider the attributes of any individual you are nominating and how they may contribute toward the positive development of WasteMINZ.  Ultimately, the success of our organisation will depend on the skills and views of the Board elected by our membership.

Cheers, Paul
