Invitation to Community Boards to share good practice examples: Calling for Snapshots

The Community Board Executive Committee (CBEC) is inviting all Community Boards to take a digital snapshot of a community project to share with participants at the forthcoming 2021 Community Board Conference.

Community Board snapshots are short videos which give a profile of a project undertaken or supported by a Community Board. Projects could be:

• Undertaken by the board;

• Supported by the board; or

• Show the board engaging with its communities.

The snapshots are an opportunity for Community Boards to provide a summary of an innovative project undertaken by a board that contributes to community well-being. Snapshots may be a video or PowerPoint, and may be recorded by digital camera or smart phone. They should be no longer than seven minutes. All snapshots received will be played at the conference where delegates will be invited to choose their favourite.

Please send all entries to admin@lgnz.co.nz by 5.00pm (deadline extended to) Friday 9 April.

Please note that the Community Board Snapshots replace the awards competition held at previous conferences, there will be no call for applications for Community Board Best Practice Awards.

For further information please contact Graeme Sykes at graeme.sykes@npdc.govt.nz
