Regional Ambassadors

In 2018, Jersey NZ developed a new volunteer role known as the Jersey Regional Ambassador. Many of the new Regional Ambassadors have already been active in their local areas supporting prospective and existing members alike. The Regional Ambassadors have been well resourced, we encourage members and clubs to make use of them regularly.


  • To be the face of Jersey NZ on farm and in the field.
  • To support members and potential members of Jersey NZ.
  • To represent and advocate for the work of Jersey NZ and hold to the highest standard the purpose and values of the organisation.

General Guidelines:

Provide a two way communication between the Jersey NZ Board of Directors, Jersey NZ Membership and Jersey Clubs in their respective region

  • Provide a presence representing Jersey NZ at regional industry events and Jersey Club events
  • Provide a regional referral service for Jersey Marketing Services as becomes apparent
  • Promote breed relevance within the industry while representing Jersey NZ
  • Approach prospective new members in their respective regions
  • Where the position is filled by a qualified TOP classifier; include the promotion and additional service of TOP & Classification

Clubs and members alike are encouraged to use this valuable resource to increase participation with Jersey NZ.
