Waiariki Bay of Plenty Polytechnic has appointed its fourth community appointee to the council.

Council chairwoman Cathy Cooney announced today Whakatane's Dr Ryan Morrison had filled the position.

"Dr Morrison brings a strong community and learner-centric focus to governance. We believe his background in life-long learning and community development will be extremely valuable as our new institution moves forward to provide strong pathways to meaningful employment for all of our region," Ms Cooney said.

Dr Morrison is director of operations at Eastbay REAP in Whakatane and deputy chairman of REAP Aotearoa New Zealand.

He has served on university senate and programme approval committees, school boards, iwi trusts, and is a registered capability mentor for NGO governance and operations.

"I'm excited to join the council at this pivotal time in the history of tertiary education for our region," he said.

"I'm looking forward to working with the council and management to help realise those new opportunities and being part of the collective conversation with all stakeholder groups about how we capitalise on our strengths to support our diverse communities."
