InternetNZ Council 2001/2002

Historical information about the 2001-2002 InternetNZ Council and the range of commitees and working groups that carried out the business during that period.

COUNCIL 2001-2002

The Council is responsible for the running of InternetNZ. It has up to twenty members. One member is appointed by the Society's Industry Advisory Group, but all other members of council are elected by the membership.

The Council has delegated particular responsibilities to a number of Standing Committees which are composed of Councillors. Individual members of InternetNZ may be appointed to Committees.

As the need arises, limited-term Working Groups are set up with membership open to the members of the Society. Each Working Group reports to a specified Standing Committee.

From time to time the Society may establish highly targetted, limited term working parties as 'whole of Council Working Group'. These may be referred to as 'Steering Groups' or 'Task Forces' depending on the nature of the task. For instance, InternetNZ may be called on act as a "neutral party" to facilitate progress on a community-wide issue and a Steering Group may be established to co-ordinate the work.

Members can access the Minutes of Council meetings in the "Members Only" area at Council Meetings Index .
