Nomination and election of Board Directors

21 May 2024

Vegetables NZ Board Directors are elected by registered members of Vegetables NZ. Any member of Vegetables NZ is eligible to nominate, second a nomination, or be nominated for the position of Director.

Vegetables NZ’s Constitution & Rules, Clause 6.1(a), provide for the Board to comprise between six and eight individuals, holding office from time to time as the Directors.

There is an annual retirement by rotation (every three years) for Directors. Directors who are retiring by rotation and are available for re-election, do not need to be nominated.

  • John Murphy: retires by rotation and is available for re-election
  • Warwick Simpson: retires by rotation and is available for re-election

Kirin Hari has resigned, which creates a vacancy on the Board. 

When do nominations open and close?

Nominations are open. They close at 5pm on Thursday 11 July. 

Where do I send nominations?

Completed nomination forms should be returned to Vegetables NZ, either by emailing: or by post: Andrew Bristol, Vegetables NZ, PO Box 10232, Wellington 6140.
