Our People


SCOUTS New Zealand couldn't be what it is today without the help of thousands of volunteers. Spread across a wide range of roles, volunteers form the backbone of Scouting in New Zealand.

SCOUTS New Zealand is managed by a core team of National Staff located in Wellington. It also employs a number of other Staff based throughout the three service territories.

The National Board

The National Board decides on the policy and direction of SCOUTS New Zealand. Whilst members are elected, appointed and ex-officio, they are all volunteers and form a valuable team for guidance and future development nationwide.

National Council

Five elected members from each of the five Regions form a large part of the National Council. Other members include National Leaders and other core volunteers. The National Council is responsible for supporting the work of the National Board and representing the voice of local leaders.

Youth in Governance Network

The Youth in Governance Network is made up of the two "under-26" representatives from the five regions who also sit on the National Council. The Youth in Governance Network is a subset of the National Council which acts as a consultation group for the CEO and run our Youth Forums each year.
