Local Committee positions
Local Committees (LCs) are groups representing New Zealand members in 15 local areas around the country. LCs advise CA ANZ regarding the membership in the area and its particular needs, preferences and issues as these arise and are a key conduit between CA ANZ and its members. Local Committees comprise between 5 and 10 members in each group.
This year we will have Local Committee positions available in each area. The appointment process will run as follows:
- Applications open from 19 October – 6 November 2020
- Local Committee Appointments are approved at NZ Council meeting on 9 December 2020
Local Committee positions will commence from 1 January 2021 for a term of between 1 and 3 years.
