Full Text: A ballot of all NZNO members to decide whether NZNO adopts a proposed new constitution begins next month.

A special general meeting on December 12 appointed NZNO chief executive Geoff Annals as the returning officer for the ballot which will run between March 1 and April 16. Members will have the option of casting their vote online or by postal ballot. Workplace meetings will also be arranged for members to discuss the matter. A new constitution would see the current 18-member board replaced by a board of 11 directors, and the president and kaiwhakahaere positions become full-time and paid.

If accepted, a new constitution would come into effect once the registrar of the incorporated societies had approved the changes.

Further details about the ballot are in a notice on p54.
