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.

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.
