2020 Young Elected Members’ Hui

LGNZ, in conjunction with Hutt City Council, is holding the annual Young Elected Members’ (YEM) Hui from 19 – 21 November 2020.

Taking place in Lower Hutt, we invite all current elected members of local authorities, local boards and community boards who were under the age of 40 on polling day to attend.

The Hui theme is He Ao Hurihuri, Change is good and the two-and-a-half-day Hui will comprise of a range of workshops, guest presentations, discussion sessions and networking activities.


YEM Talks

The Hui programme includes a “YEM Talks” session. This session is designed to provide delegates with an opportunity to present to the group on topics that are of interest and relevance to YEM. Each YEM Talk is followed up with question and discussion time. Delegates will be invited to put forward proposals for a YEM Talk following registration.


Hui outcomes

While attending the Hui, delegates can expect to:

  • Network, exchange ideas and build strong relationships with other YEM and councils;
  • Gain a better understanding of how YEM can more effectively engage, communicate and work with their communities; and
  • Peer mentor and access practical support.
