New InternetNZ Council 2016/17

A blog post from Jordan Carter, Chief Executive of InternetNZ

28 July 2017

InternetNZ held its Annual General Meeting last night and our members voted on four Council positions.  

We are governed by a Council and each of these council members are elected by members of the organisation. Each year we have four new spots up for grabs.

Last night, there was a competitive race with eight nominees for the four available spots. The votes have now been scrutinised and we are happy to confirm the four successful placements.

Two existing Council members were re-elected for another three year term - congrats to Sarah Lee and Dave Moskovitz. The remaining two council positions were won by Don Stokes, a pioneer involved in some of the first ISP services to set up in NZ and a founding InternetNZ councillor, and Kate Pearce, an international security consultant.

From all the staff at InternetNZ - congratulations and we look forward to working with you as the newly formed council group.

We are pleased to see a competitive race for the council positions - thanks to everyone who put their name forward.

Also, I would like to say thank you to recently departed Councillors Rochelle Furneaux and Hayden Glass. It has been a pleasure to have you both on the Council for InternetNZ over the last few years.

A big congratulations also to Rick Shera who was elected as a Fellow of InternetNZ.
