Does Braille Matter to You, Now and Into the Future?

  • Are you able to read uncontracted braille by touch or by sight?
  • Are you interested in braille promotion, teaching, codes, and production?
  • Are you able to attend usually four meetings per year with travel costs to Auckland met by BANZAT?
  • Are you willing to commit some time outside meetings to further BANZAT’s work?
  • Have you served on a club or society committee, or a trust, or as a company director?

The Braille Authority of New Zealand Aotearoa Trust welcomes expressions of interest from anyone in New Zealand who would be willing to serve as a BANZAT Trustee.

There are two vacancies: one is for a two-year term concluding in September 2020, and the other is for a three-year term concluding in September 2021. Trustees are eligible for reappointment. A trustee who is resigning by rotation this year has advised she will not be seeking reappointment as her work is no longer directly braille-related.

If you answered yes to the questions above, then we encourage you to write explaining what you would bring to BANZAT to further the cause of literacy through braille in New Zealand.

The closing date for expressions of interest is Saturday 30 June 2018. Trustees aim to make their selection in July and advise the successful appointees in time for you to attend our next Annual General Meeting on Tuesday 11 September 2018.
