The NZIOB Council is made up of a President, President-Elect (or Immediate Past President), two representatives from each of the Chapter Boards, and the National Chair of the Young Practitioner Advisor Group.

The Chief Executive Officer is responsible for the overall management of the NZIOB.

The National President and CEO meet with Chapter president’s bi-monthly, alternatively in each of the three regions.

The Annual AGM is held each year at a different Chapter City to enable members from different regions to attend. Chapter AGM’s are held annually.

Chapter Presidents serve for a period of two years.
