PSA Executive Board

The executive board is our policy-making body accountable to congress. It is responsible for overseeing PSA policy and making sure we spend our money wisely.

It meets at least five times a year, and is chaired by the PSA president.

Executive board members may hold office for two years and can be re-elected for a further two consecutive years.

The board consists of:

  • The president, who is elected by congress
  • The secretariat
  • The elected convenor of each sector committee
  • The tuakana (convenor) and teina (deputy convenor) of Te Rūnanga o Ngā Toa Āwhina
  • A representative of the staff group
  • A PSA Pasefika representative
  • A PSA Youth representative
