Note on Trust Deed changes
At the AGM of 24 June 2023, it was resolved by a special majority of over 75% of the adult registered members of Ngāpuhi who voted, that:
The proposed amendments to the Trust Deed of Te Rūnanga-Ā-Iwi O Ngāpuhi, as notified, are for the collective benefit of all Members of Ngāpuhi and are agreed.
The amended Trust Deed was then provided to Te Ohu Kaimoana Limited (‘TOKM’) for review.
TOKM advised that as a next step, the Rūnanga needs to add further minor amendments to the Trust Deed to explicitly meet specific requirements in Schedule 7 of the Māori Fisheries Act 2004 (please see explanatory note for details). The Rūnanga has now incorporated those amendments in the proposed amended Trust Deed. TOKM has reviewed the proposed amended Trust Deed and confirmed that:
Accordingly, the following resolution is put to the adult members of Ngāpuhi, for your consideration and vote:
That the proposed amendments to the Trust Deed of Te Rūnanga-Ā-Iwi-Ō-Ngāpuhi, as notified, are for the collective benefit of all Members of Ngāpuhi and are agreed.
The proposed Trust Deed changes and voting forms are available on our website ngapuhi.iwi.nz or at the Rūnanga office.
