Our Annual General Meeting (AGM) is coming soon and that means election season is now upon us! 

NZTech is your united voice for New Zealand technology, growing tech for good. 

Our mission is to build a values-led, connected tech community that unites to work on collective impact initiatives that grow a diverse tech talent pipeline, increase exports and investment, and encourage the uptake of tech across Aotearoa.

This work is focused on how technology can be used in service of a more equitable, sustainable, safe and prosperous tomorrow for all New Zealanders.

To ensure the continued impact of our work, it is critical to have the drive and support of a purposeful Board. We are now seeking nominations for the Board and encourage you to consider the role, or to nominate someone who you believe can make a positive impact. In line with our Board Diversity & Inclusion Policy, we have actively identified skills and experience needed to help us accelerate our strategies and ensure diverse thinking. 

For the current NZTech strategic outcomes, we are seeking candidates with any of the following skill sets:

  1. Senior executive management skills – our constitution requires CEO level representatives
  2. Understanding of Te Tiriti obligations
  3. Strong financial skills
  4. Proven track record in governance

In addition to these skills, NZTech strives for a diverse Board. We encourage all involved to consider the current makeup of the Board and how candidates for vacant seats might enable the Board to gain a more diverse perspective. 

Board Nominations

There is now an opportunity to put yourself forward, or nominate someone, for a role on the NZTech Board.

This year we have vacancies for the following positions:

  • Corporate Major – 1 position available
  • Other Corporates – 1 position available
  • SME / Start Ups – 1 position available
