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:

  • Rebecca Grainger (board chair)
  • Elizabeth Berryman
  • Kyle Forde

This means there are three elected board member seats available at this election.


The current board members standing for re-election are:

  • Karen Day
  • Michael Sheehan
  • Nathan Billing
  • Rebecca George

The new board candidates standing for election are:

  • Gavin Young
  • Jayanthi Mohanakrishnan
  • John Ashley
  • Kevin Ross
  • Rei Ishikawa


At the AGM, the three elected board candidates will be announced. Elected board members get a two-year term. After the AGM, the board convenes a special meeting and the board can choose to appoint up to three additional people 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, however the board is able to co-opt additional (non-voting) board members if necessary to ensure the right mix of skills on the board.
