NZPM Group established the Future Governance Programme in 2017 to help foster future elected director capability from within our ordinary shareholder membership pool.


The programme identifies potential future elected directors for the NZPM Board, by selecting up to two shareholder applicants to participate in a formal training and mentoring programme. The selected candidates are invited to attend and participate in NZPM Board meetings for a nine month period from September to May, attend Institute of Directors structured governance training courses, and receive one-on-one mentoring from an independent professional director.


Applicants for the programme need to be ordinary shareholders who have indicated a strong desire to be involved in the future NZPM governance process, and who also demonstrate the core attributes for development and mentoring as potential future directors of the co-operative.


Each year, the company asks for applications during April and May.  Applicants, are shortlisted and interviewed by an independent selection panel during June and July with the successful candidates being announced at the company’s AGM.


In August 2017, Ngaire Mansfield from Straight Flush Plumbing Limited, Wellington was appointed as NZPM’s first recipient of the programme.


In August 2018, the board extended the programme to two appointments being Reuben Cutts from Fixed Price Limited (Auckland) and Nathan Stewart from Precision Group Limited (Wellington).
