Our structure

Governance of the Institute is undertaken by the NZIA Council, led by an elected President, which meets four times a year.

In its decision making, the Council is guided by a set of rules that define objectives and help decide matters of importance. The Council’s composition is determined by election, with Institute members in each of the eight branches voting for a regional representative. The three schools of architecture and the New Zealand Registered Architects Board are also represented.

Our Structure

 

The NZIA Council

Members nationwide elect representatives to the NZIA Council, which also includes representatives from the Schools of Architecture at Victoria and Auckland Universities and at Unitec, and the New Zealand Registered Architects Board. Policies set by council fit broadly into the following areas: practice support, membership services and professional development. Members assist with work in these areas to ensure all members are kept up to date with developments and services. The day to day work of the Institute is undertaken by a small management team comprising a chief executive, a professional services manager and a communications manager who all receive further support from five other staff. All staff are based in Auckland. A network of eight branches throughout the country provides a local focus for members, who use their branch as an avenue for involvement in the Institute’s activities.
