Any full member is eligible for nomination provided that (with the exception of the four Wards of the Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland Region) nominees for the Executive must be employed within the electoral area for which they are nominated. In the case of the four Wards of the Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland Region, the nominee may be a member of any branch in the Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland Region, but the nomination must be in respect of a specific Ward.

Where a member is nominated for the office of President and any other office, ballot papers and instructions will be issued so as to permit preferential voting for the candidates in that particular election.

At the conclusion of the voting, the votes cast will be counted in the order of President, Vice President, Executive members, and the votes recorded against a candidate in an election for a lower office will not be counted if that person has been elected to the office of President.

Please note that the proposers and seconders of all nominations must be full members of the Association. Proposers and seconders of Executive member candidates (with the exception of President and Junior Vice President positions) must be members from within the electoral area concerned.

Nominations close with the General Secretary, NZPPTA, P O Box 2119, Wellington 6140, at 5.00pm on Friday 4 September 2020. Nominations must be made on the attached form, with the written consent of the person nominated in the space provided. All Nomination forms must be accompanied by the completed candidate’s information sheet.

The forms of nomination to be used, together with material for candidates, are attached. The special freepost envelope, addressed to the PPTA Returning Officer, is provided for the purpose of returning nomination forms. In no circumstances should it be used for ordinary correspondence.
