Advancing the sport of motorcycling

Board Member Vacancies

Motorcycling New Zealand is seeking applications for three positions on the Board.  Under the terms of the Constitution the existing Members are eligible for re-election; however, they must go through the nomination process as per the MNZ Constitution.

The three Board Positions are:

  • President
  • Road South Island
  • Off-Road North Island

All Officers shall be full members (and not an Affiliated Club) at the time of their nomination and election.

The Board is a Governance Role - governance is the process which ensures the organisation complies with all legal and constitutional requirements, sets strategic direction and priorities.  It also sets high-level policies and management performance expectations, characterises and oversees the management of risk, and monitors and evaluates organisation performance in order to exercise its accountability to the organisation and its owners.

The Board does not control the sport directly - the Commissioners run the sporting codes and the administrative office is in charge of day-today operations and supports the commissioners and member’s needs.

To view the documents relevant to the Board positions, please see the below links:

Please submit a completed Board Nomination Form no later than 5pm 31st March 2018 to the Voting Auditor:

                                                                                                                       Updated:  9/12/15   

A Board member may not officiate at any New Zealand, North Island, South Island Championship event or at a Street Race Event

A non Sporting Commissioner (Officials) due to the diversity of their role may not officiate at a MNZ event at any level.

Should an official have an appeal against them or a decision that they have made, they will stand down until the appeal has been heard.

Should you be an official at an event which has a fatal accident, you will stand down until an investigation has been completed.
