The NZPM Group Board is pleased to introduce this new initiative to help foster future elected director capability from our ordinary shareholder membership pool. The objective of the NZPM Future Governance Programme is to identify potential future elected directors for the NZPM Board, by selecting one shareholder applicant to participate in this new programme each year.


It is expected that the successful applicant will be a shareholder who has indicated a strong desire to be involved in the future NZPM governance process, and who also demonstrates the core attributes for development and mentoring as a potential future director. Applicants will be shortlisted and interviewed by an independent selection panel in early August, and it’s anticipated that the successful candidate will be announced at this year’s AGM on 18 August in Blenheim.


The selected candidate will be expected to attend and participate in NZPM Board meetings between September 2017 and May 2018, and during that time they’ll also receive Institute of Directors structured governance training, and some one on one mentoring from an independent professional director. This programme is a great opportunity for you as a shareholder to become involved in the future governance of your co-operative by learning more about your Board and how they operate, whilst at the same time receiving professional mentoring and training as a company director. We are currently seeking applications to participate in the 2017 programme from interested ordinary shareholder members until 31 July this year.
