New Council leadership for InternetNZ
Jordan Carter InternetNZ Group Chief Executive •
On Thursday 29 July, we held our Annual General Meeting, and the InternetNZ members elected four new positions including a new President and Vice President.
The President, Vice President and two Council Members were hotly contested by nine highly professional candidates. All the candidates were truly inspiring and it was great to see the ideas and passion they put forward in the lead-up to the elections.
The votes were scrutinised, and we are happy to confirm the successful placements.
- President: Joy Liddicoat
- Vice President: Jay Daley
- Council member (three year term): Richard Hulse
- Council member (one year term): Jeff Montgomery
My congratulations to the four successful members. We’re looking forward to working with you in these new roles.
It was fantastic to see such a competitive race for all of these roles. Thank you very much to everyone who stood to represent the InternetNZ members. I do hope those who were unsuccessful will remain active participants in our membership community.
I would like to say a huge thank you to Jamie, our outgoing President. Thank you for your support, counsel and insight over the seven years you have held this role, and the eight years as a Councillor before this. InternetNZ is better for your work. I’m sure that just as you have overseen enormous change, your successors will too.
At the AGM we also had the pleasure of announcing two new fellows. Since 1998, InternetNZ has been recognising members of the New Zealand Internet community with these fellowships.
Congratulations to both Potaua Biasiny-Tule and Robyn Kamira. Thank you for your contribution to the development of the Internet here in Aotearoa.
