Not a member? Join now - or anytime up to 24 hours before the date of the AGM - and you will be eligible to vote. 


The AGM is usually held during the HiNZ Conference. In 2020 the conference was cancelled due to the impacts of Covid-19 on the event sector, so this year's AGM will be held online. Only HiNZ members are eligible to attend the AGM.


Board structure

The HiNZ Board has up to 9 voting board members. This is a mixture of 6 elected board members and 3 appointed board members.


Elected board members who have one more year of their term to serve are:

  • Karen Blake
  • Liz Berryman
  • John Ashley

There are three elected board member seats available at this election.


The current board members standing for re-election are:

  • (to be confirmed)

The new board candidates standing for election are:

  • (to be confirmed)

At the AGM, the three elected board candidates will be announced. Elected board members get a two-year term.


Appointed board members

Immediately after the AGM, the six elected board members convene a special board meeting to select additional people (not necessarily election candidates) to the board. Appointed board members get a one-year term. There are a maximum of nine board members with voting rights in the constitution. If there are six elected members there can be a maximum of three appointed members with voting rights. If required, there can be more than nine board members as the constitution enables the board to appoint additional (non-voting) board members to ensure a suitable mix of skills on the board, based on the current program of work.


If you wish to be considered for an appointed board member position, please notify the CEO at (You will be sent instructions on how to email a one page expression of interest to the HiNZ Board Chair, explaining why you wish to be appointed and what skills you could contribute to the HiNZ board.)
