Nominations are invited for six vacancies on Komiti Pasifika.  Four of these will be one-year terms and two will be two-year terms.

The Komiti Pasifika advises the PPTA on the needs of Pasifika teachers and students.  The Komiti generally advises the PPTA National Executive on Pacific issues and concerns, as well as bringing a Pacific outlook to PPTA policy.  One of the Komiti Pasifika members is also a member of the PPTA National Executive.

The Komiti has six members, who are elected by Pasifika members of PPTA.  Only Pasifika members who are listed on the electoral roll held at PPTA National Office are eligible to be nominated and vote in elections.
