At our AGM in November the first independent New Zealand Board member was elected.
Paul Cressey is the first Independent Member to be elected to the National Board since the Governance Review changes were accepted and implemented following the 2011 AGM.
Paul brings to the National Board his experiences from being a member of the Counties Manukau DHB and being a past chairperson of several charity boards.
We are also pleased to welcome Elizabeth Mitchelson. Elizabeth was one of the original members of the Maori Caucus and went onto the Waitemata Area Board as their Maori Area Board Member earlier this year.
Elizabeth and Paul join a great team of National Board members.
