New Council 2016/17

InternetNZ is governed by a Council elected by members of the organisation, with four spots coming up each year. Last Friday saw a competitive race with eleven nominees for the four available spots. The votes were tallied and interim results announced Friday evening, and scrutinised results on Saturday.

Members returned three existing Council members for another three year term - congrats to Amber, Richard and Kelly. The vacancy left by the retirement of Neil James was filled by Keith Davidson, a longtime InternetNZ member who has in the past held roles including President and Executive Director.

I am looking forward to working with this talented team. I'm also in awe of the calibre of the nominees who stood, and extend my thanks to everyone who put their name forward. Asking for support from your fellow members and putting yourself up for democratic scrutiny is never the easiest thing to do, and InternetNZ is lucky to have such a depth of talent and ideas available and keen to stand for election.
