Haramai te aka nui, haramai te aka roa, haramai te akaaka matua

Welcome the great vine, welcome the long vine, welcome the parent vine

Following the recent Te Mana o Ngāti Rangitihi Trustee Elections, the Charitable Trust is now seeking expressions of interest from registered adult members to fill three Trustee positions for a term of three years.

Recent Te Mana o Ngāti Rangitihi Trust engagements with iwi members have voiced a greater need for the inclusion of rangatahi and for ensuring the wellbeing of our kaumātua. As such, two of the three positions will be reserved for rangatahi and kaumātua respectively. We encourage rangatahi, pakeke and kaumātua to submit their expressions of interest.

Members can express their interest by emailing: darcy@ngatirangitihi.iwi.nz before the closing date: 18th March 2022. All expressions of interest will go through a shortlisting process and successful candidates will be selected by agreement from the Te Mana o Ngāti Rangitihi Board of Trustees. The successful candidates will be announced on our website during the week commencing 4th April 2022.
