Application for Nomination to Board of Trustees
to be elected at AGM, 30 Nov-2 Dec 2020, in Waikato
Are you ready to contribute to Māori Midwifery?
We need two highly skilled and energetic members to join our Board of Trustees. The Board Trustee role contributes to the governance oversight of Ngā Maia, and must have the best interests of the organisation and its stakeholders as a paramount consideration. Trustees should be familiar with the core business of Nga Maia prior to appointment, and be capable of assisting the Board to carry out its objectives by reason of your skill, expertise, profession or standing in the community, or other qualification.
Board members will be required to attend Board Meetings, AGM/Hui-a-tau and occasional regional or planning meetings. As these are unpaid Board roles, it is vital to have a passion for Maori Midwifery.
Completed applications can be emailed to Nga Maia and should be received by Monday 31 August 2020.
Who can be nominated to stand for Trustee?
Any Registered Nga Maia Midwife member, preferably with an current APC. To be eligible to be elected a nominee must satisfy the criteria specified in the Trust Deed, clause 1.1. of Schedule 2. Registration forms and the Trust Deed are available below.
Who can vote for Nga Maia Trustee members?
Any registered Nga Maia Adult member.
In the event that the number of nominees for the position of Trustees are no more than the number of candidates, no election shall be necessary and the persons nominated shall be deemed to have been duly appointed.
