Our Structure

Administration

FGC is headed by Chief Executive Katherine Rich

The FGC office is in Wellington where close working relationships with relevant government departments are maintained.

  • FGC’s activities are overseen by a Board of Management. 
  • Specific issues are addressed by Membership Services, Industry Relations, and Health & Regulatory, Export, SMA working groups. All member companies may nominate representatives to these working groups. Special-interest working groups are established from time to time to address specific topics.
  • The Chief Executive Officer oversees day-to-day administration of FGC.
  • FGC’s activities are conveyed to members in regular newsletters and circulars.

Members meet formally twice each year at:

  • The Half Yearly Meeting and AGM held in Auckland in April/May.
  • The Annual Conference held in October/November.

These meetings provide valuable forums for members to listen to and discuss issues of interest and concern.
