Board of Trustees

The all-volunteer Acorn Foundation Board of Trustees is comprised of up to nine Trustees, of whom:

  • One is appointed by the Mayor of Tauranga City Council
  • One is appointed by the Mayor of Western BOP District Council
  • Two are appointed by the Waikato/Bay of Plenty branch of the NZ Law Society
  • One is appointed by the Tauranga Chamber of Commerce
  • Up to four are appointed by the other Acorn Board Trustees

This selection process provides a very robust governance model that prevents any individual or group from gaining any undue influence over the Board.

Certain tasks are allocated to a range of support Committees, but ultimately, the Board is responsible for the success of the foundation.
