Dear NZPI Member,
Governance and Constitutional Changes
As you will no doubt remember, in 2010 the NZPI Council reviewed the existing NZPI governance model and adopted in principle the following changes to the governance structure of NZPI:
3 members from
2 members from Rest of North Island (excepting Wellington)
1 member from Wellington region
2 members from South Island
Consultation with Members
NZPI has consulted extensively with members throughout 2010 and 2011 on the proposed governance changes and more recently has tested membership appetite for the change through a formal ballot of voting members on both the changes to governance and the associated constitutional amendments that must occur in order to effect that change.
The Ballot Results
That ballot has now concluded with the following results:
Of the 164 voting members who responded to the ballot:
Part A responses
Part B responses
A Mandate for Change
The above results provide NZPI leadership with a mandate to transition to the new governance framework. The new constitution with the amendments clearly marked is attached for your information. Please note that the new Constitution becomes effective immediately. A report to Council on the timing of the transition to align our governance framework with the new constitution has been provided to the Executive for consideration and will be provided to the wider Council at the upcoming November Council meeting. At this point, the transition is timed for the next Annual General Meeting of NZPI, with the call for nominees and elections for Board members planned to occur at the end of 2011.
Congratulations to all concerned, this is an historic moment for NZPI and I look forward to working with each of you to transition to the new governance arrangements over the coming months.
