The Surf Life Saving New Zealand Board is now calling for applications for the National Honours & Awards Committee.

The National Honours and Awards Committee comprises of the Chairman of the Board of SLSNZ and four members (one from each Region) who shall be appointed by the Board, from nominations made by the Club Chairs Committee in each Region.

The term of office is for two years beginning on January 1st (after being appointed at the December Board Meeting) ending on December 31st of the second year after their appointment.

A member may be re-appointed by the Board for subsequent and consecutive terms of office. The Chairman of the Board of SLSNZ will remain on the committee for the duration of their term as Chairman of the Board of SLSNZ. The Honours and Awards Committee shall determine a schedule of rotation so that there is a rotation of two Regional members annually.

Due to that rotation, the two members of the Committee that see their terms of office come to an end on December 31, 2014 are Murray Wilson, representing the Southern Region and Neale Ames representing the Central Region. Both are available for re-appointment.

Applications will close with the SLSNZ CEO on November 1, 2014 and following this the Central and Southern Club Chairs Committees from each Region will select the preferred nominee for their Region and recommend this appointment to the SLSNZ Board.

Club Chairs Committees would not be restricted from nominating someone who lives outside their Region to represent them.

The Central and Southern Club Chairs Committees will submit their nominations (via the SLSNZ CEO) by November 30, 2014 for approval by the Board at their December meeting.

• Their knowledge of Surf Life Saving
• Their extensive networks within the SLSNZ membership
• Their years of experience at a local and national level
• Their capability
• Their integrity and reputation
• Their independence and
• The overall diversity on the committee.

As such, the SLSNZ Board is now calling for applications for the 2015 National Honours & Awards Committee. Anyone wishing to apply should send in their application to:
