Arbitrators’ and Mediators’ Institute of New Zealand
WELLINGTON — The Arbitrators’ and Mediators’ Institute of New Zealand (AMINZ) has confirmed the election results for two positions on its ruling Council.
Nicole Smith (right), an arbitration practitioner based in Tauranga, with a strong interest in international dispute resolution, was elected for the first time to the seven-member board that oversees the country’s peak dispute resolution body.
Ms Smith, who said she was delighted to be assuming her new role, will be joined by Sophie East, who was re-elected for another term.
“There are some truly exciting things planned in the arbitration space in the next year,” Ms East said, mentioning next month’s Arbitration Day and the AMINZ-ICCA International Arbitration Day, which will be held in Queenstown on April 19, 2018.
The two women, who were elected by AMINZ members, join existing Council members Mark Colthart, Royden Hindle, Nicola Hartfield and Mark Kelly, along with the Council’s serving president, John Walton.
