Two Vacancies on EPA Māori Advisory committee

Tēnā koe i roto i ngā āhuatanga o te hōtoke,

The Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) is a crown entity, responsible for protecting the environment, and enhancing our way of life and the economy.

We are looking for two new members for Ngā Kaihautū Tikanga Taiao, our statutory Māori advisory committee, which provides advice to the EPA on policy, process, and decisions of the EPA to help ensure Māori perspectives are taken into account. 

Past members of Ngā Kaihautū Tikanga Taiao have brought distinction to the work of the EPA through their mana, leadership, governance skills, strategic thinking, depth of knowledge of te reo, tikanga and mātauranga, and relevant professional experience in environmental matters. Ngā Kaihautū memberships are for a three-year term. The commitment is not full-time, but is comparable to a board membership.

If you are interested in applying please follow this link to find the Ngā Kaihautu Tikanga Taiao Terms of Reference 2014 – 2017, and this link to find a copy of the application form. 

Please send information requests, enquiries and applications to Angela Houghton at the Environmental Protection Authority, Private Bag 63002, Wellington 6140, phone 04 474 5527, or email Angela.Houghton@epa.govt.nz.

The closing date for applications is 5.00pm, Friday, 30 June 2017.
