Overview

Nominations are now open for a number of positions on the Board of Directors for UN Youth New Zealand. We are currently seeking:

Sitting on the governing body of UN Youth will require a substantial commitment. Collectively, the Board’s functions include:

  • Monitoring performance against the Strategic Plan
  • Holding the National Executive to account
  • Exercising financial oversight
  • Performing risk management
  • Determining UN Youth’s policies and values
  • Overseeing key volunteer appointments

The Board is typically meets once a month, and the ability to attend online meetings is expected of Directors. Board Directors also hold membership on at least one sub-committee of the Board, which typically meet monthly. The Board may also hold strategic retreats, and this and any other travel for events or meetings in your role as a Director will be covered by UN Youth, to the extent that is possible under our policies.

Please note that UN Youth is a charity and does not provide any remuneration to members. This will extend to Directors. All positions are entirely voluntary, however, reasonable expenses may be claimed.
