Notice of Special General Meeting of the New Zealand Hair and Beauty Industry Training Organisation Incorporated

To be held on Monday 22 February 2021

We are pleased to notify our Board and Members that the New Zealand Hair and Beauty Industry Training Organisation Incorporated (“HITO”) Special General Meeting (“SGM”) will be held on Monday 22 February 2021.

The meeting will take place at HITO Wellington Office, Level 2, 107 Customhouse Quay, Wellington Central commencing at 11am. Light refreshments will be available after the meeting. A zoom attendance option is also available.

The reason for the holding of an SGM is:

HITO Board Member Continuity:
Due to the Reform of Vocational Education being implemented by the Government, HITO has been told that as an organisation we must hand over responsibilities for the “Arranging of Training” to a training provider by December 2022, and the responsibilities for Standard Setting to a Workforce Development Council by the end of 2021.
Presently we have several Board Members, including our Independent Chair, whose terms finish during the next 2 years. The remit will ask members to allow current Board Members to stay in place for a further 3 years, or until the transition of HITO ‘s business to other Government directed entities is complete, whichever is the sooner. This decision is extremely important for the continuity of the organisation.
