About our committees

Each Committee has a Terms of Reference. The arrangements below apply to all Committees unless specified otherwise in the section of the document which is specific to a particular committee.

Committee Membership

Committee membership is governed by the Committee Convenor and Member Appointment Policy. All Committee Convenors are to be appointed by Council and Committee Members are to be approved by Council.

Where appropriate (depending on the nature of the Committee), the Convenor will be a Fellow of the New Zealand Society of Actuaries.

The Convenor is responsible for recruitment of other members of the Committee, with appointments and rotations to be approved by the Council. Re-approval of Committee members is required by Council. The term varies by committee and is covered in the Policy.

Committee Meetings

Committees meet on a regular basis to achieve their objectives. The Convenor is responsible for ongoing administration.

External Communications

The Convenor is empowered to engage with external parties on behalf of the Society on matters contained within the scope of the Committee’s Terms of Reference above. All public communications must be approved by the President or a Council member, the Convenor’s role being to provide advice to the President and Council on NZSA public communications.


The Committee will provide the Council with a monthly update of its activities and report on the Years activities for the AGM. The Committee will also inform the Council of any material issues it considers appropriate at any other time.
