How the IIBA New Zealand Chapter board elections work.

The election normally follows the process of

  • Announcement of upcoming election - listing of board roles up for election

  • Interest - Prospective nominees register their interest in the roles

  • Nominate - Prospective nominees confirm their commitment to run for the board position

  • Vote - Voting commences for the Board Position Term. All IIBA New Zealand members are allowed and invited to vote.

  • Announce – Election results are tallied and announced to the members.


You must be a member of the IIBA to be nominated or to nominate yourself for the board position.
