In 2019 Cyril Mako, Justin Tamihana and Emma Winiata sought re-election to the Trust. They were elected unopposed and we have enjoyed the skills and expertise they have brought to the Board. Each trustee is elected for a term of three years.
The terms of the other three trustees, Bernadette Arapere, Rachael Selby and Jerald Twomey end in September 2020 necessitating a further election in the coming year. The Trust is seeking members with financial expertise, knowledge of investment, waste management and the fishing industry.
To ensure the integrity, independence and expediency of the election process we contract an Independent Election Company to run our elections.
Each nomination must be made on the official nomination paper. Nomination papers are available from the Chief Returning Officer, Anthony Morton, electionz.com Ltd and can be requested by:
