Prendergast reappointed as Tourism NZ Chair

Prime Minister and Tourism Minister John Key today announced that Kerry Prendergast has been reappointed Chair of the New Zealand Tourism Board for a one-year term.

The Board, trading as Tourism New Zealand (TNZ), markets New Zealand as a tourism destination.

“I would like to thank Kerry for her work on the board since she was first appointed in 2011, and look forward to her continued excellent contribution to the work of TNZ,” Mr Key says.

“Due to her current term expiring within the pre-election period, this reappointment is for a one-year term starting on 15 August. This will provide continuity and stability to the board.”

Ms Prendergast is the former Mayor of Wellington, holds an MBA specialising in Marketing and Strategy, and has extensive experience in promoting Wellington as a tourist destination.

She is currently the Chair of the Environmental Protection Agency, and Executive Chair of the NZ International Festival of the Arts and the Wellington Jazz Music Festival Trust.

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
