The NZCER Board
The Board of NZCER consists of five elected members and one member appointed by the Minister of Education. The Board, as it sees fit, can co-opt up to three additional people to be members of the Council.
Board members are appointed for terms of 4 years. Every 2 years, two or three of the five elected Board members will complete their term. An electoral college, convened from the education sector, nominates and elects members (see side-bar for details). Retiring members may stand for re-election.
The Board represents a wide cross section of education interests. It helps identify key educational issues and stakeholder needs and provides a strategic focus for NZCER. The NZCER Board Policies guide the Board's work.
