Board Applications

As we approach the end of another quinquennium (5-year period) of church management we are again looking to the church’s rich resource of lay members to fill positions on the church’s key boards and committees. Over the last 5 years the South Pacific Division has been blessed to have lay members with diverse skills and experience make valuable contributions to the work and mission of the Church by giving their time, skills and experience to our key boards of management and committees.

For the next quinquennium we are seeking lay members who have a strong commitment to the mission and values of the church and also have a background in a wide range of professional disciplines including risk management, human resources, change management, finance, actuarial science, marketing, health, media, WHS, legal, logistics, manufacturing, and international development, to name a few.
