Wanted - Board Member

Carolynne Riley from Hastings Hearing Association

If you value life with sound and share our view that early hearing education is vital for a healthier and more connected community then we need you!
For over 50 years we have been providing unbiased information, advice and support for people affected by hearing loss in our community. Due to a lack of awareness, 7 years ago we developed an education program that we deliver free to local Early Learning Centers, kindergartens, schools, tertiary centers and community groups raising awareness on the causes and prevention of noise induced hearing loss and other hearing related topics. Our program is highly valued and demand is growing, therefore we feel we are in a good position to expand and put greater focus on our education program. We provide a preventative service, enabling our community to value their hearing and take action to preserve a life with sound.

We are looking for a forward thinking, proactive person ideally with governance skills to support our mission and vision.
This is a voluntary role - Expectations of Board Members are that you attend our Board meetings which we hold every second Monday of the month from 5:30pm, these last approx. 1-1.5hrs.

If you are interested in becoming a member of our Board please get in touch today!

Do you want to give back to your community?

Kelly from Havelock North

Te Atawhai Early Childhood Centre based in Mayfair is looking for a new Chairperson to help us to lead and support our not for profit, independent Early Childhood Centre.

Our centre had highly committed, compassionate and professional staff who strive daily to provide the very best care and education to our children, their families and the wider community - sometimes in very challenging circumstances. Our centre is totally free for up to 30 hours of care and education for each and every child who attend.

We are looking for a positive, open minded individual who can
work proactively with staff, families and the wider community. If you have some leadership skills and experiences and a can-do attitude this would be an advantage.

Our Te Atawhai community is a very supportive one. As Chairperson you would be drawn into our welcoming community and well guided and introduced into the role. The role itself is not demanding and involves building strong relationships, giving guidance and outside perspective to the management and the small group of Board of Trustees, who are families for our children. You will Chair a BoT meeting every eight weeks or so.

If you are at all interested in this important role for our centre, please phone Kelly on 06 870 7030. Thank you.

How great is Your Place? Take our survey!

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Do you trust your council? Do you feel safe at home? Take our survey about your town.

For the Your Place survey we've put together a series of questions which should provide us with a comprehensive set of data that will be analysed and put in context for us by a team from AUT University.

We'd love to hear from you. Find out more here.
