The CENNZ committee is engaged in all things emergency nursing: strategic planning, governmental dialogue, collaboration with national agencies, development of education including delivery of the triage course, and building relationships with other organisations nationally and internationally.

To represent your region as a committee member, a commitment to advancing emergency nursing is essential.

The term of office is for 2 to 4 years.

The committee meets monthly. Most meetings are around two-hours long and held online. Three to four times per year, the CENNZ committee meets in Wellington for two full days. Committee members are expected to attend wherever possible as some of our most crucial mahi occurs kanohi ki te kanohi. Travel expenses are reimbursed.

Specific portfolios or roles within the committee require attention and work between committee meetings. Time commitment ranges from 4 to 8 hours per week, depending on the portfolio. The ability to develop and critique documents are valuable skills. Each committee member writes short regional journal reports and facilitates dialogue between committee work and important regional developments and issues.
