Our governance team, called the National Executive Committee (NEC) is elected by DPA members.
Members of the Committee live in all parts of New Zealand. They have a wealth of experience dealing with disability issues and they play a very active part in our organisation.
The NEC is led by President Gerri Pomeroy. To ensure the team has a depth of experience, the presidential term is four years, although the actual term as president is for two years: This means that at any one time, there is an elected President, a President-Elect or an Immediate Past-President. Pati Umaga is DPA's Immediate Past-President.
Our national office is located in Wellington and our National Operations Manager is Lynne Edmonson.
