The SLSNZ Board delegate has convened the SLSNZ Board Appointments Panel (“BAP”) as required by Rules 18.1, 15.10 and 15.11 of the SLSNZ Constitution when a casual vacancy has arisen from the death of an appointed Board member. Due to the sad and unexpected passing of Independent Appointed Board Member Graham Crombie, SLSNZ finds itself in the position of needing to appoint a replacement to complete the remaining 16 months of Graham’s term (which ends in September 2020).
The 2018/19 Board appointments panel has been brought back to complete this task, with one change where Denise Bovaird, the SLSNR Chair has stepped in to replace Tim Jago as the Northern Region representative.
The BAP to undertake this process is comprised as follows:
· Denise Bovaird – from Northern Region.
· Paul Treanor – from Eastern Region.
· Michael Bassett-Foss – from Central Region.
· Ken Jones– from Southern Region.
· Brent Warner – SLSNZ Board representative (Convenor).
· Terry Kilmister – a nominee from Boardworks International.
One position on the SLSNZ Board is up for appointment which is:
· One (1) Independent Appointed Board Member position – to complete the three (3) year term vacated by Graham Crombie which started in September 2017 and will come to an end in September 2020. As such the term is approximately 16 months.
Please refer to the SLSNZ Constitution for further details about the process of appointment of Board Members.
Any person who wishes to apply for a position on the SLSNZ Board should complete the Board Member Application Form and return it to the SLSNZ Chief Executive by no later than Thursday 18th April 2019.
Applicants should be aware that if shortlisted they must be available to attend a face-to-face interview with the Board Appointments Panel on either Saturday 11th or Sunday 12th May 2019 and should keep both these dates free.
Following feedback and in line with the lifesaving development and review cycle, in 2019 SLSNZ is commissioning a project to review the format and structure of the Patrol Operations Manual. This is a two year project with review, development and Beta testing carried out in selected clubs in 2019 to iron out any oversights and issues. In 2020-21 the full roll out into all clubs will be conducted following a membership campaign in the 2020 off season.
By using today’s technology and bringing together some of our most innovative thinkers and operational experts we aim to update the POM and place it on a platform that keeps the information required both relevant and evolving to meet the operational needs of our lifeguards.
