Ngāti Apa ki te Rā Tō Trusts Need You!
Nominations are being sought for suitable iwi member candidates for appointment to two vacancies (one for each hapū) on the Ngāti Apa ki te Rā Tō Trusts.
The Trusts meet bi-monthly with hui taking place on Saturdays – other time commitments include serving on Trust sub-committees, representing the iwi in regional and national forums from time to time and interacting with our iwi members. The positions are remunerated.
Candidates are required to act in accordance with the trust deeds of the Trusts and the law generally and to always act in the best interests of the iwi members of Ngāti Apa ki te Rā Tō (putting this above any personal interests). While experience governing and/or managing entities would be useful, some training is available to trustees. Ultimately, honest persons with a passion for hapū/iwi development with strong networks within and external to the iwi would make great trustees.
So talk to your whānau now, consider the documentation available on our website and put yourself forward! Nominations must be received by 5pm, Thursday, June 28, 2018.
