We don't have a view about what these people should be like - we want to have a diverse Board that is committed to providing a Festival for the community.” The Auckland Pride Board is comprised of seven members and new members will join; Shirley Allan, Kirsten Sibbit, Phylesha Brown-Acton, Richard James and Julie Swift. The term of office is initially three years from March 2016 and those interested are asked to send a detailed CV and covering letter to: by Friday 11 March 2016.
