2024 Elections

Updated 16 March 2024 by Warren Fitzgerald

Did you enjoy the Festival? Do you love NZ canyons? Want to contribute to NZCA’s mission by volunteering on the executive? We always want to hear from passionate people who can volunteer their time. You can apply for any role, even president! If you are interested, please chat with us to ask any questions you might have. 

Members of the NZCA who wish to fill any of the executive roles must send an application to secretary@nzcanyoningassociation.org by the deadline.  

We will acknowledge receipt of all applications. Each application should be one page or less and include a profile photo and a biography that states your experience and skills that you would apply to the role. To learn more about the roles available within the executive, check out the ‘who are we?’ page and our strategic objectives.   

Executive discussions are mostly done online, though there is an expectation that exec members will meet at the bi-annual canyoning festival to meet face to face.

All applicant bios will be published on this website.

Timeline for elections:

15 March:  Nominations open

1 April: Nominations close

10 April: Voting (if needed) opens

30 April: Voting (if needed) ends. Elected members join the executive for a handover period.

1 August:  New executive takes office. 

Vacancies on the executive

There are no current vacancies on the executive, but don’t let that stop you from applying. You can apply for any role, even president, and we’ll hold a vote to determine the successful applicants.

How we run an election: 

In accordance with the NZCA rules,

  • If the number of nominations (including incumbents) is less than the number of positions, the election will be decided by a vote of the incumbent executive.
  • If the number of nominations (including incumbents) exceeds the number of positions (15), a vote by email from members will be carried out during the voting period.
