    The way New Zealand funds and finances urban growth is not keeping up with demand for housing, access and services. The Government is investigating new and different ways to support development and wants to hear from industry.

    Infrastructure New Zealand, in partnership with MinterEllisonRuddWatts, is pleased to invite you to a half day infrastructure funding and financing workshop which will be followed by a unique opportunity to engage with senior Government Ministers.

    The workshop will provide industry with a forum to discuss urban development challenges as well as options to overcome problems. Following the workshop, Finance Minister Grant Robertson, Transport and Urban Development Minister Phil Twyford and Infrastructure Minister Shane Jones will outline current Government thinking and seek feedback.

    This is your opportunity to shape a critical aspect of public policy and we would value your contribution. Attendance is strictly on an invite only basis.

    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.

    Infrastructure New Zealand, in partnership with sponsor Harrison Grierson, are pleased to invite you to our final Emerging Talent Network event for 2018: "Homelessness Hackathon". For those who have not been involved in a ‘hackathon’, it is an interactive, competitive, high speed workshop where small groups of people work on a problem, generating innovative, quick fire solutions, to pitch to a panel of judges.


    A recent homeless census established that over 800 people were sleeping rough in Auckland. In addition to those on the street, another 2874 people, including 1299 children were in temporary and emergency accommodation.

    Please join the Emerging Talent Network for a briefing on homelessness from our expert panel: Moira Lawler (Lifewise), Mel Wall (University of Auckland), Glen Cornelius (Harrison Grierson), and Kimberly Leuila (Housing New Zealand). Following the briefing, a challenge will be issued by Hackathon Facilitator Craig Gillett (Harrison Grierson) and groups will be established to develop quick fire solutions, and pitch them to the panel. The winning group will receive a Britomart Black Gift Card to the value of $300, redeemable at any listed Britomart hospitality venue.

    Kindly sponsored by Harrison Grierson, the evening will conclude with networking and refreshments at their new offices in Parnell.


    In the spirit of Christmas, each attendee is requested to bring a small, unwrapped gift (but with original boxes or packaging) to the value of $15 - $20 to donate to Lifewise. Lifewise has informed us they are in particular need of the following items:

    - Christmas Gifts for boys or girls aged 5-8, 10-12 and 13+
    - Moving In Packs for a new home including toilet paper, toothpaste, shower gel, teabags, biscuits
    - Personal Hygiene Packs for homeless people  - eg could include female toiletries, toothbrush, wipes, small bottles shampoo etc

    On arrival please deposit your gift into the boxes provided at the event venue. We will present these gifts to the CEO of Lifewise at the conclusion of the evening.
