The Rural Contractors New Zealand Board
RCNZ's board comprises eight members, elected annually, to represent four zones. Zone 1 is north of northern Taranaki across to northern Hawkes Bay. Zone 2 is south from there to Wellington. Zone 3 is north of Oamaru. Zone 4 is south of Oamaru.
Rural Contractors New Zealand exists to provide benefits for its members and to represent at a local and national lebel, the interest of the rural contracting industry. The very diverse nature of the rural contracting industry means that the association has a very wide coverage, both geographically and in the services provided.
Each of our zones holds its own meetings to bring members up to date and also an AGM where two board members are elected – if not already elected by postal ballot.
The country is divided into four zones:
Upper half of the north island, seperated from zone 2 by a line between north Taranaki and North Hawke’s Bay
Lower half of the north island, seperated from zone 1 by a line between north Taranaki and North Hawke’s Bay
Upper half of the south island, seperated from zone 4 by a line across the south island from Oamaru
Lower half of the south island, seperated from zone 3 by a line across the south island from Oamaru
