The National Executive is the governing body of our union. It oversees the budget, makes day-to-day decisions about union policy, confirms the union’s strategic plan, and approves the Annual Report and accounts in Conference off-years.

The National Executive has two presidents – one Maori and one non-Maori. Currently our Presidents are Muriel Tunoho and Gadiel Asiata.

There is a strong commitment to diverse representation on the National Executive, which includes representatives from each of our six industries, North and South Island Vice Presidents, Regional Representatives, and a representative from Te Runanga, our Women’s Committee, Komiti Pasifika, and the Youth Network.

Every voting member of the National Executive is elected by the union members they represent. Different National Executive representatives are elected at different times: the North and South Island Vice Presidents, and our regional representatives, are elected at our Biennial Membership Meetings for a two-year term.
