Our Board

CEAS is governed by a Board of up to 11 members, domiciled in various parts of New Zealand. Board members are principals of the CEAS member firms. The Board elects the Chairperson and appoints the Secretary, Insurance Consultant, and External Auditor.

The Board meets on a regular basis, typically 5 times a year, and all CEAS members are invited to attend the Annual General Meeting.

There have been some changes in the leadership of both CEAS and I&G Boards:

  • Arthur Park stepped down as Chairman of CEAS and is being succeeded by Craig Lewis.

468A7979

 

  • Jim Dobbie succeeds Peter Fitchett as Chairman of I&G.

468A7984

Both Arthur and Peter have had a long involvement with CEAS and I&G in several capacities. We are fortunate that Arthur and Peter will remain Board members of CEAS, and Peter will stay on in an advisory role with I&G Board.

The Board members - on behalf of the membership - thank Arthur and Peter for their long and distinguished service to the Society, and their ongoing contribution.
