Thank you for sharing your views on our future and what’s important to you at our August Engagement Hui.

Your Trustees have listened to your feedback and refined how our Aspirations, Values and Principles, and proposed representation and asset ownership structure could look in the future.

Now it’s over to you again – we’re back on the road around Aotearoa in November, to share feedback from August’s Hui, look at the refinements your Trustees have made and gather more feedback from our Tātau Tātau o Te Wairoa whānau.

This is an exciting time with big decisions on our future to be made very soon. Getting your thoughts is really important, so we hope you can join us at one of the following hui:

From here, our Trustees will make recommendations, taking your feedback into account. Then all adult registered members will have the opportunity to vote on the special resolutions.

Take part online
If you can’t make it to one of the November Hui, you can still play your part:

  • Provide feedback directly to the Trust Board through an online survey form, which will be emailed to you and available on our website soon – feel free to share it around the whānau
  • Read the November Engagement Hui information book to understand the key concepts for discussion and feedback
  • Hui will be live video streamed through our Facebook page – and you can ask questions by posting them on Facebook while they are underway

It’s you, our people, who’ll decide on the final asset and representation arrangements. Your participation is crucial to a successful future for the iwi and hapū of Te Rohe o Te Wairoa.
