Kaipara Community Health Trust

The Kaipara District Council invites expressions of interest to fill two vacancies for the Kaipara Community Health Trust (KCHT). 

KCHT’s objective is to ensure there are health services available locally for people in our community to access.  The KCHT has been highly effective in protecting and enhancing the services available on the Dargaville Hospital site.  You will be able to build on this legacy through good governance, ensuring that the Trust’s current assets are well-managed for current and future community needs.

Kaipara District Council is seeking to appoint a community trustee from residents in the area known formally as the Central Ward (Ruawai and Paparoa area), and a trustee representing the business community.  They will join the other members in quarterly meetings of the Trust and other sub-committee meetings as required.  These are an unpaid voluntary appointment which is eligible for reimbursement of some travel expenses.

If you are passionate about the provision of local health services in Dargaville, please express your interest by writing to Jason Marris at Private Bag 1001, Dargaville 0340; or by emailing jmarris@kaipara.govt.nz. Please detail why you are interested in becoming a Trustee and the skills that you would bring which might benefit the Trust. Experience as a chairperson may be valuable.

Further information can be obtained by contacting Jason on 09 439 1226 or by email.

Expressions of interest close on Sunday 28 October 2018.
