Women in Kiwifruit: expressions of interest to form a committee

04 February 2021

Since its establishment in 2017, the Women in Kiwifruit Network has connected women across our industry and created a platform to help build networks and share experiences.

Building and strengthening this platform to support our community of women is important. A survey of members in 2020 showed interest in establishing a committee to drive engagement opportunities - and now there’s an opportunity for you to join in.

Being a member of the Women in Kiwifruit Network committee, you will have the opportunity to provide support through networking, face-to-face events, professional and personal development, and mentoring. Committee experience is not required, but a passion for the industry is essential.

Prospective committee members must be able to commit to attend at least 80% of committee meetings either in person or virtually (around six per year as decided by the committee). A strong commitment is also required in helping to organise and attend Women in Kiwifruit events (approximately two to three each year) outside of attendance at Committee meetings.

Positions available include Chairperson, Treasurer, Marketing, Administration, Health and Safety, and Programme coordinator roles.

If you’re interested in taking up one of these opportunities, please contact Zespri by email for an application form by Friday 26 February 2021.
