Council elections are held annually in the last week of July by InternetNZ | Ipurangi Aotearoa to replace those whose term has ended. These Council members play an important role in guiding the strategic direction and governing our organisation.
All eligible members can nominate someone, or nominate themselves, to stand for council.
Nominees will be contacted by the Returning Officer, and be sent an information form to provide an election statement/bio and a profile photo. These will be published on the InternetNZ website within three days of receipt.
For any member wishing to nominate themselves to stand for Council, the Returning Officer is able to supply a neutral nomination. If such a nomination is required, please contact the Returning Officer via email - firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that all nominees (and their nominators) must have been a financial member of the Society for at least three months before the date of their nomination to be eligible to stand for Council.
This process will run via Electionz.
InternetNZ uses a preferential and proportional electoral system as required by its constitution. More information about this voting process and electoral system, including more detail about the process for counting the votes and calculating those who are elected, is available on the electoral system page.
InternetNZ's rules or constitution may only be changed by members. Our constitution is online here.
The results of elections are announced during the AGM. You need to be a member of InternetNZ to attend.
