The Council 2002

COUNCIL 2002-2003

"The Council is responsible for the running of InternetNZ. It has up to fourteen members including the four Officers. All Members of Council and Officers 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.

Minutes of Council meetings are available from the Council Meetings Index.
