This notice is to inform beneficiaries of Rongowhakaata Iwi Trust we are calling for nominations to fill the (8) Trustee vacancies following the retirement by rotation of our existing Trustees this year.
Because of previous trust deed changes, five trustees are now to be elected to represent each of the five marae of Rongowhakaata named in the Trust Deed (“Marae Elected Trustees”) and three trustees elected on a Rongowhakaata-wide basis (“Iwi Elected Trustees”).
Nominees must decide if they are standing as a Marae Elected candidate or Iwi Elected candidate. They cannot stand for both.
Nominations open on Friday 12 January 2018 and close at 12 noon on Wednesday 7 February 2018.
Nominations must be made on the official nomination form available from the Returning Officer (contact details below) or from the links below. The requirements of the nominations are outlined in a candidate handbook which will be made available with the nomination form.
The Trust will give further notice of any elections required after the nomination period has closed.
All inquiries regarding the Trustee nomination process should be directed to the Chief Returning Officer at –
