Meeting Resolutions Action taken
AM 14 and 15 There were no agreed policy resolutions recorded in the Record of Proceedings for 2014 and 2015 N/A
AM 2016 Resolution A: That NZEI Te Riu Roa appoints a working party to investigate the implications of altering the fee structure from the current 5 bands to 10 bands, with each of the current bands split at the 50% point. (Counties Manukau Area Council) The Fees Working Party has been set up with four member representatives included, one from each of our three largest area councils and one from National Executive. It met in Wellington 15 February 2017 and by teleconference 6 April 2017. The proposal for change in the resolution was considered and determined to be impractical in that it firstly introduced a higher level of complexity and secondly, could not be accurately costed due to NZEI Te Riu Roa not holding the necessary income information for each member. Costings based on assumptions of the number of members who would drop into a lower fee band indicated costs would be unsustainable and would have a substantial impact on the organising, campaigning and support capacity of the Institute. The working party has moved to considering other possible changes. This work is expected to be ongoing into 2018.
AM 2016 Resolution B: That the NZEI Te Riu Roa Climate Change policy is adopted. (National Executive) Policy included in the NZEI Te Riu Roa Policy Document. NE working group has met regularly on policy development.
