As part of a rotation policy designed to ensure diversity and fresh thinking at governance level, Creative Bay of Plenty Charitable Trust (CBOP) is now seeking up to four new Trustees to join five incumbents who have an active interest in the organisation’s lead agency role and in Toi Moana, the arts and culture strategy for the region.

CBOP’s Board of Trustees is responsible for overseeing the strategic and financial planning of the Trust and the delivery of contracted services to Tauranga City Council and Western Bay of Plenty District Council.

We are an enthusiastic board with strong professional networks and complementary skills working with a dynamic General Manager to bust the myth that Tauranga is a ‘cultural desert’. If you are passionate about seeing creative expression thrive in our region, then we want to hear from you.

We’re especially interested in candidates who whakapapa to our local iwi, those living in the Western Bay, people with research experience, and those who represent the region’s youth voice.  For the latter, we are particularly interested in hearing from candidates under 30 who want to start or develop a governance career in a supportive environment.  

The positions are non-remunerated, for an initial appointment term of three years.  Meetings are currently held monthly, with some additional representative and strategic planning work required outside of meetings.  

Please return completed email to by Friday 16th of August at 5.00pm
