Community Boards Executive Committee (CBEC)
CBEC is LGNZ's community board executives' committee, providing support and guidance to community board members in Aotearoa New Zealand.
The Community Boards Executive Committee (CBEC) is an advisory committee to LGNZ National Council. It advocates for community boards and promotes best practice.
CBEC has one member from each of LGNZ’s six geographical zones, a Te Maruata and a Young Elected Member representative. CBEC advocates for community boards across the motu and supports their development, capability and impact.
The committee meets three times a year in Te Whanganui a-Tara, Wellington. As well as these meetings, each zone representative run regular zone forums to update community board members and discuss topical issues.
Every two years, the New Zealand Community Boards Conference is held. The biennial conference was introduced in 1997 to bring together the community boards of New Zealand to share practice and to help improve the understanding and work of community boards.
