You are invited to attend Infrastructure New Zealand’s Annual General Meeting and election of officers.
We are pleased to request nominations for the Board of Infrastructure New Zealand.
The principal role of a Board member is to support Infrastructure New Zealand’s vision and objectives as set out in the Constitution to “promote the provision of world class infrastructure by both the public and private sectors for the benefit of New Zealanders.”
A link to the Constitution and a role description for board members is included in the link below.
The initial term of a board member is three years.
Under the Constitution, four members of the Board are required to stand down each year. However, this year, five Board positions are available.
Patrick Brockie is standing down at the end of his term as Chair. Existing Board member Andrew Stevens (RCR) has been nominated to replace Patrick as Chair.
Robert Jones, having moved employers from Jacobs to Fletcher Construction during the year, is required stand down.
In addition, three Board members - Mike Sang (Ngai Tahu), Graham Spargo (BECA) and Paul Blair (BNZ) - are not standing for re-election at the end of their terms.
One of those positions will be filled by an Appointments Committee and confirmed by the Board. All other positions are open to nomination and will be filled through election at the AGM. It is customary that nominees for the position of Chair have prior experience on the Board. Existing Board members are listed here.
We continue to seek the appropriate mix of skills, sector representation and diversity on the Board. Particular areas of focus for representation on the Board include but are not limited to contracting and facilities management, engineering / design / planning, banking, and those involved in infrastructure in the South Island. The link below provides a graph which shows eligible member representation versus board representation following the retirements described above.
All full corporate members are eligible to nominate a representative to stand for election to the Board and to vote at the AGM in person or by proxy. Members must complete a Form of Authority to be eligible to vote. The relevant papers are available by clicking the links included in this notice. There is one vote per membership.
Associate members are entitled to attend the AGM, but are not entitled to stand for election or vote.
The Agenda and all relevant papers are listed in the links below.
