Waka Ama New Zealand Elected Board Member Nominations

Story Thumb

Nominations for Waka Ama New Zealand Elected Board Member are now open and close Friday 8th October

Waka Ama New Zealand are currently seeking nominations for one (1) elected board position.

Nga Kaihoe o Aotearoa, (Waka Ama New Zealand) Inc is the non-profit national sporting organisation for the sport of Waka Ama in New Zealand. The organisation’s current structure has been in place since October 2011 and the last 10 years have been extremely positive for our sport.

We have this year launched a new strategic plan and the Board are excited to fulfil that plan over the coming years. 
Strategic Plan can be viewed here: https://www.wakaama.co.nz/pages/view/6  

The vision of Waka Ama NZ is:  Waka Ama - for all - for life! 

The Board is made up of four (4) elected board members and three (3) appointed Board members. We are currently calling for nominations for one (1) elected position.

Nominations can be made by Member Clubs or Member Regions. You can nominate any individual. Nominees do not need be a member/paddler of your club or region. However the individual cannot be an existing member of one of the 6 Waka Ama Regional Boards/Committees (TTPCA, AROCA, TPOTI, TUOTR, HTPWAA, TWOA)

We are seeking a Board member who will take an active involvement in the sport’s governance body and in the best interests of its membership as a whole. 

All nominees must be honest, reliable, trustworthy and comfortable to ‘walk and talk’, particularly in relation to the values of our sport (as outlined in our Strategic Plan) 

Nomination form is electronic form available on this link: 
forms.gle  and must be received, complete with relevant nominee profile and any references, by 5pm Friday 8th October 2021

A short list of nominees will be selected from the nominations, based on the skills that best provide for the needs our organisation. This final list of nominees, along with their profiles, will be posted on the Waka Ama website by 15 October 2021 in order for clubs to vote.
