NZSTA Representation

The New Zealand School Trustees Association (NZSTA) provides representation on behalf of member boards of trustees on a wide range of issues critical to governance.

This representation is undertaken by the NZSTA Board and particularly the President of the Association, who performs this representation role on a full-time basis. The representational activities of the NZSTA are funded by way of membership subscriptions.

The representational bodies include the NZSTA Board and NZSTA Regions.

A publication of considerable value to member boards of trustees is the NZSTA Trustee Handbook  This handbook is free to NZSTA members. It contains information on a wide range of matters relevant to governace and is updated regularly. Complementing this are a number of NZSTA publications and NZSTA Services.
