Skills are sought in key governance areas, including funds development, law, planning and procurement and applicants should have a passion for telling the stories of and protecting the region's heritage.
The trust has one of the few bicameral museum governance structures in New Zealand, and is recognised internationally for this.
The joint council is made up of two houses: the Tikanga Māori House, representing the region's iwi, and the Civic House, selected by an electoral college made up of the museum's communities of interest.
The joint council is responsible for leading the museum's overarching direction and for safeguarding the institution's financial and cultural sustainability for future generations.
Information packs and nomination forms can be collected from the Whanganui Regional Museum in Watt St between 10am and 4.30pm any day.
Questions about this appointment may be directed to the Whanganui Regional Museum Trust Electoral College chairman, Ian McGowan, at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 06 345 2385.
