The ApiNZ Board election process has begun and submissions for nominations will be open between Friday 29 April 2022 and 12 noon on Friday 13 May 2022.
This year, nominations are being sought for the following positions:
- THREE Commercial Beekeeping sector positions
- ONE Non-Commercial Beekeeping position
In line with Apiculture New Zealand’s existing Constitution, existing board members Raymond Key and Ricki Leahy (Commercial Beekeeping Sector) and Paul Martin (Non-Commercial Beekeeping Sector) are required to retire but are eligible for re-election. Raymond Key has decided not to put his name forward for re-election while Ricki Leahy has decided not to stand again after being involved in governance of the industry for many years. Paul Martin has chosen to stand for re-election. In addition, Kate Kember (Commercial Beekeeping Sector) no longer works in the industry, so her position has come up for election.
Only commercial and non-commercial beekeeping sector members are entitled to stand as candidates and vote in this year’s election.
IMPORTANT: All candidates, nominators, and voters must be confirmed financial members by Friday, 5pm May 13, 2022.
