It's time to vote: 2024 ACE New Zealand Board and Regional Chair Elections

Voting opens on Thursday 27 June for the 2024 ACE New Zealand Board and Regional Chair elections. Who will you choose to support ACE at regional and national level?

ACE New Zealand Board 

The Board is responsible for the governance of ACE New Zealand. It oversees the strategic direction and management, and reports to members on their stewardship of the organisation. It’s made up of six elected representatives and up to three appointed members. Board members are elected to serve a three-year term. 

A strong governing board is a diverse one. Our members are from a range of personal and professional backgrounds. We need our Board to reflect our membership and the communities we serve – from business leaders, engineers, project managers and planners, to marketers, lawyers and Māoritanga advisors, from Northland to Southland, large to small firms, and a mix of gender, age and ethnicity.


We are excited to present to you the ten candidates for this year's two vacant Board positions:

ACE New Zealand Regional Chairs 

Regional Chairs provide consulting leadership in their region aligned to the ACE New Zealand strategy. They also want to expand their professional network, positively shape the future of the industry and give back to the sector. They have time to invest, have at least mid-level experience, and are involved in the business side of consulting and engineering. 

This year there will be elections for Regional Chairs in Auckland/North Shore, Nelson/Blenheim and Wellington. Candidates for Manawatu and Otago/Southland will be appointed unopposed.
