NZer Wins Seat On International Governing Body

New Zealander Wins Seat On International Governing Body

Wellingtonian, Nilda Campbell, has been elected to the board of a prestigious international organisation that looks after the interests of secretarial and administrative staff globally. Nilda Campbell, who will be based in Wellington, will take her seat as Affiliate Representative on the International Board of the International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP) which has 40,000 members internationally. Nilda is the Immediate Past President and a Fellow of the Association of Administrative Professionals NZ (AAPNZ)

Ms Campbell, Personal Assistant to the National President, NZEI Te Riu Roa, beat off contenders from Barbados and India to win the inaugural seat on the IAAP Board of Directors based in the United States. The election was held at the July 2001 Convention in Toronto, Canada. The Board meets four times a year, including the two meetings at the Convention. The October meeting will be in Nashville, Tennessee, the site of the 2002 Convention. The following meeting March 2002, will be at San Juan, Puerto Rico.

In her role as International Affiliate Representative she will represent 24 affiliate organisations including Aruba, Australia, Barbados, Brazil, Europe, India, Jamaica, Philippines, South Africa, Trinidad Tobago, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. The role was established by the IAAP Board at the 2000 convention in Chicago, Illinois when the IAAP Board recognised the need for its affiliate organisations to have a voice in the pursuit of their global perspective.



"This is a very prestigious position and once again New Zealand has lead the way by proving that it has the confidence of the other international affiliate organisations to represent its interest in the global environment," said AAPNZ National President, Robyn Bennett, FNZSES who attended the convention as the New Zealand delegate. "This is another successful outcome of the International Secretarial Summit held in Wellington in July 2000 where nine countries met to discuss secretarial and administrative issues at a global level."

"It's a great honour to represent New Zealand at this level," said Nilda Campbell. " My aim is to provide an effective link from the affiliate organisations to the IAAP Board. It's also a great opportunity to keep up with trends internationally and exchange views with other secretarial and administrative staff from the world."
