Sector groups provide opportunities to shape the future of our sector, as well as opportunities for knowledge sharing and networking.
How do they operate?
WasteMINZ has developed terms of reference and operating guidelines to define how sector and technical working groups are formed and operate.
Each sector group operates under the WasteMINZ umbrella, which provides professional support, in helping the sector group achieve its goals. The groups represent the technical expertise and knowledge that is WasteMINZ. The Board and staff of WasteMINZ act as facilitators, empowering each group to achieve their goals, in line with the guidelines.
What is the steering committee’s role?
Each sector group has a steering committee who are there to guide the work programme. Members of the steering committee represent the sector.
Developing an effective forum to network with others inside and outside the sector
Contributing to the development of policies
Being involved in making sure regulation or legislation is practical and sensible
Identifying where industry research is necessary or where there are information gaps
What are the sector group’s goals?
The sector groups are mostly formed to meet a specific need, such as;
Development of industry standards
Development of good practice guidance
Accreditation and quality management systems
Research and development
Training support and development
Who can join a sector group?
Any current financial WasteMINZ member can join a sector group so that you can receive information and updates on the group. The continued success of sector groups is dependent upon the level of commitment and participation of its members. Not a member? Here’s how to join WasteMINZ.
If you are a WasteMINZ member and would like to join one of our sector groups (so that you can receive information on this sector group, but does not mean that you will be a member of the steering committee), please contact our Sector Projects Manager Nic Quilty or call her on 09 476 7167.
