KINDERGARTEN TARANAKI GOVERNING BOARD
CALLING FOR NOMINATIONS
As a member of Kindergarten Taranaki you have a great opportunity to develop and hone your Governance skills and capability. The Governing Board is responsible for setting the strategic direction for the Association to maintain the viability of Kindergarten education for all tamariki/children in Taranaki now, and for future generations. Kindergarten has a legacy of providing quality early childhood education and we remain committed to continuing that legacy.
You could contribute to this by standing for election to the Governing Board. The Governing Board is required to hold eight (8) meetings in a calendar year. The Board meets at Kindergarten House, New Plymouth, and attending meetings remotely via Zoom is also an option if attendance in person is a problem.
The Chief Executive has delegated responsibility from the Governing Board for the day-to-day operation and management of Kindergarten Taranaki and its 24 Kindergartens and 200 staff, with an annual turnover of approximately $11.6m.
There are two (2) member vacancies to be filled this year for the next two (2) year term. Board members hold office for two (2) years commencing from the closing of the meeting at which they are elected, continuing until the end of the second Annual General Meeting following election. Board members are eligible for re-election from the end of their term of office.
Serving on the Governing Board helps ensure Kindergarten education will continue in Taranaki, and remain strong and relevant for current and future generations.
