Nominations for Te Runanga chair and vice chair sought.
The chairperson needs to have a good understanding of Te Runanga's role and structure and the partnership with NZNO. A clear understanding of how to implement the Treaty of Waitangi is a key part of this role. The ability to articulate the issues and challenges for Te Runanga members, both professionally and industrially, is also essential. The vice chair plays a key role in supporting the functions of the chair. For a copy of the nomination form, please contact NZNO office administrator Sharon Joe on 04 931 6700 or email email@example.com. Written nominations dose on Friday July 8 at 5pm. The Te Runanga Annual General Hui (AGH) will be held in Whanganui on August 26-28 at Putiki Marae. The opening address will be given by Maori Party co-leader Tariana Turia. At the AGH, nominations will be called for two representatives to serve on the Nursing and Midwifery Advisory Committee (NMAC), a representative for the Council of Trade Unions' (CTU) Affiliates Council and for the editorial committee of Kai Tiaki Nursing New Zealand.
The key rote of NMAC is to review and develop new NZNO policies. Te Runanga representatives need to have a good understanding of the agreed process for documentation within NZNO and have the ability to integrate the Treaty of Waitangi into NZNO policy using the Foundations for Partnership document. Being part of NMAC is a great opportunity to support members in practice with relevant information and guidance, influence NZNO and contribute to the on-going development of the nursing and midwifery profession.
The CTU representative needs to have a strong industrial focus. This is an opportunity to work closely with other trade unions and influence such issues as the direction of government policy, changes in working conditions and safety in the workplace.
As the Te Runanga representative on Kai Tiaki Nursing New Zealand's editorial committee, you will be required to peer review articles submitted for publication. Experience in critiquing literature for publication and/or research would be an advantage.
For further information and to register for the hui, please contact Des Te Ngaruru-Canterbury on 06 344 3891 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
