The role of the Executive Committee

The NZEIPS Executive Committee consists of up to 12 members. Eight positions are voted onto the Exec by NZEIPS members every two years, at the Annual General Meeting, which is held around June each year. The remaining positions are for members who are brought onto the Exec Committee for a period of time or particular purpose, who help bring more diversity to the Exec team. The role of the Exec is to identify and work on tasks designed to promote or develop the provision of Early Intervention in Psychosis in NZ. For example, members of the Exec lead on the organisation of the National EIP Training Forum, held every two years. The Exec has also been involved in developing resources for EIP teams, and promoting an evidence-based approach to Early Intervention in Psychosis across NZ.
