Nominations open for CLT elections

Posted at 6:03am Thursday 29 Aug, 2019 | By Allison McLean journalist@thewanakasun.co.nz

Nominations are now open for those who want to serve next on the Central Lakes Trust (CLT) board. The board is made up of five publicly elected trustees and three appointed trustees.

“Every three years, we, as a community get to vote on who will represent us and serve on the board of CLT,” says CLT chair Linda Robertson. “This year will see considerable change in the board for the Trust, as four of our trustees are mandated to retire, having served on the board for nine years.”

The term of office for a trustee is three years; however, they can serve up to a maximum of nine years.

The charitable CLT plays a significant role in the community, with more $388 million in assets, including 100 percent ownership of Pioneer Energy Ltd, and it distributes more than $8 million annually to charitable causes. Since its inception in 2000, the trust has given $90 million into a wide range of community projects and services throughout Central Lakes.

Nominations close on October 3 at 12pm, and voting will run from October 31 through November 22 at 12pm. For more information, visit CLT's website.
