Selections & Appointments Panel

Selections & Appointments Panel

The NZDFA represents deer farmers in appointing producer members to the Board of Deer Industry New Zealand.  This is done by way of the Selection and Appointment Panel.

The panel is made up of the four members of the Executive Committee, together with four directly elected members, 2 from each of the North Island and South Island.  These four elected members are each appointed for a two year term.  The panel also formally meets with its board members on a biannual basis to brief them directly on Association member issues.
