Rare opportunity to join our Governance Forum

By NZISM Master account



Are Management and Leadership on the horizon for you? Are you interested in Governance with a career objective to influence or work alongside Boards?

If so, NZISM is able to offer you a valuable professional development opportunity.

For the first time since its inception, the NZISM Governance Forum has a limited number of openings and is accepting new applications.

What is the Governance Forum?

The Governance Forum is a cohort of similarly focused NZISM members who meet online to enhance their knowledge and understanding of governance and related best practice. They are regularly joined by some of New Zealand's most highly regarded Health and Safety leaders who share their experience and insights.

The forum convenes online bi-monthly, from 12:30pm to 1:30pm.

Forum membership

Membership is open to all suitably experienced OHS professionals who are members of NZISM. This will usually mean members who hold the role of OHS Manager or above. Membership might be of particular interest to those who have previously undertaken leadership roles within NZISM (eg. Branch Managers) and whose term of office has come to an end. However, this is by no means a requirement.

Joining the forum

If you are interested in applying to join the Governance Forum you will need to answer two questions:

  1. Why do you want to develop a career in Governance?
  2. What do you hope to gain from the Governance Forum?

Submitting your application

To apply, please send an email to cpd@nzism.org before Monday 26 February at 5pm.

Be sure to:

  1. answer the two questions above in the body of the email, and
  2. attach a copy of your CV.

Applications will be reviewed by the Governance Forum Chair and NZISM Operations Manager.

Due to limited spaces available, acceptance into the Forum cannot be guaranteed.

We will let you know of your success within 3 weeks of the closing date.
