The purpose of zones, as set out in the LGNZ constitution, is to:
The zone representatives are elected every three years, after the triennial elections, and hold office until the next triennial elections.
Each zone elects or appoints a chair, and in some cases an executive committee, both for a three year term. The chair runs the meetings with the support and input of the executive committee. A chair secretary, normally an officer from the chair's council, services the meetings.
Responsibility for the zone meetings is shared jointly by the zone and LGNZ.
The dates for zone meetings can be found in the Local Government New Zealandevents calendar.
