Shareholder Reference Group

Our Shareholder Reference Group (SRG) is an independent body of shareholders who work collaboratively with our Board and management.

The SRG serves to promote the interests of shareholders and help us deliver our purpose and vision.

SRG members

The SRG comprises of 12 members – two elected members from each of the four territories (Upper North Island, Lower North Island, Upper South Island and Lower South Island) and four further members who are appointed by the SRG.

SRG members hold office for three years and their terms align with our annual meetings for ease of transition and election.

Contact your local SRG Member if you have any concerns or questions — they’re there to help.
