Tauranga City Council has announced new appointments to the Tauranga Art Gallery Trust (TAGT) and Tourism Bay of Plenty (TBOP) boards.
Contemporary visual arts leader, Zara Stanhope, has been appointed to the TAGT board, and respected local mana whenua representative, Charlie Rahiri, has been appointed to the TBOP board, with approval from Western Bay of Plenty District Council, as a joint TBOP shareholder.
City Development & Partnerships General Manager, Gareth Wallis, says both bring a wealth of expertise and experience to the council-controlled organisations (CCOs), and will help ensure both boards continue to deliver great community outcomes, events, and activities for Tauranga locals and visitors.
“I’d like to acknowledge the mahi from our current council-controlled organisation board members and welcome the new trustees for Tauranga Art Gallery Trust and Tourism Bay of Plenty. We’re delighted to have such high calibre, respected, and experienced people joining these boards,” said Mr Wallis.
“It strengthens what is already a great platform for decision making and shaping an engaging, inclusive, and vibrant city full of opportunities for everyone to enjoy,” he said.
