InternetNZ Announces Election Results

InternetNZ Announces Election Results

Tuesday July 31, 2007

InternetNZ (The Internet Society of New Zealand) announces official
results in this year’s InternetNZ Council elections.

Peter Macaulay has been elected InternetNZ’s new President, for a
two-year term. Macaulay is a former InternetNZ Councillor and has served
in the past as Executive Director.

Long-standing InternetNZ Councillor and Fellow of the Society Frank
March has been elected Vice President and will hold this position for a
two-year term. The election of March to the Vice President position
creates a vacancy on Council, and a by-election to fill his position
will commence later this week.

Judy Speight has been re-elected to the Councillor position she has held
since December 2006. Five new faces - Liz Butterfield, Hamish McEwen,
Stewart Fleming, Michael Foley and Scott Bartlett - have been elected to
serve as InternetNZ Councillors.

All new and re-elected Councillors will serve two year terms, except
Bartlett who fills a vacancy created by the resignation of Councillor
Michael Sutton earlier this year and will serve a one-year term.

Macaulay is delighted with his election as President. He says InternetNZ
has been doing an incredibly good job in its business-as-usual .nz
Registry and Office of the Domain Name Commissioner functions and will
work to continue that momentum.

“The organisation will also continue to keep its eyes and ears open and
do all it can to ensure more and better connectivity in New Zealand,” he
says.

Outgoing President Colin Jackson, Vice President David Farrar and
Councillors’ Simon Riley, Mark Harris and Jennifer Northover officially
stood down from their positions at InternetNZ’s Annual General Meeting,
held last week.

The Annual General Meeting also saw members vote for constitutional
changes which will see some modification to InternetNZ’s organisational
structure.

InternetNZ Executive Director Keith Davidson acknowledges the valuable
contribution made to the Society by the outgoing Council members and
warmly congratulates the newly-elected President, Vice President and six
Councillors.

“The InternetNZ staff and I are looking forward to working with the
new-look Council to progress a significant range of issues now being
focused on by the Society, including ongoing telecommunications and
broadband policy reform, peering and anti-spam initiatives.”
