Trustees of Community Trust South are responsible for an investment fund of approximately $240 million and distributing income generated, to benefit communities of Southland, Wakatipu Basin, Tapanui and Heriot.

On 21 June 2021 Lindsay Wright and Trish Boyle will complete their second terms as Trustees and are not available for reappointment. John Wyeth will complete his first term at that time and is not available for reappointment.

The Minister of Finance has responsibility for appointing Trustees and invites Community Trust South to put forward nominations of suitable people to be considered for appointment as a Trustee. As well as seeking nominations from the Trust, the Minister can also receive nominations directly from any other interested people. To assist the Minister to identify suitable people for consideration, expressions of interest on a confidential basis are welcomed from people in the Community Trust South region.

The Minister takes into consideration several factors when making appointments, including:

• Balance of skills and legal and financial expertise required by Community Trust South

• Gender, ethnic and geographic representation

• Conflicts of interest (if any)

• Knowledge of the community, social sector and governance

All expressions of interest remain confidential to the Trust and will be sent to the Minister of Finance for consideration. Information packs and online application form can be found here
