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:

  • It complies with the Act; and
  • it must be voted on and ratified by not less than 75% of the adult members who vote at a general meeting.

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.

Voters must be 18 years+ members registered with Te Rūnanga-Ā-Iwi-Ō-Ngāpuhi. Voters can register online on our website before voting. Or, if voting in person, voters can register on the day before voting.

Votes can be cast either:

  • in person at the AGM between 10:30am and 11:45am on Saturday 16 December 2023 at the Rūnanga office; or
  • by postal vote which must be received by the Returning Officer by 5pm on Friday 15 December 2023. Postal votes may be delivered to the Rūnanga office (by hand, post or email) to:

Kia ora koutou,

we hope you are all well and keeping safe at this time. 

Our hapū kaiwhakahaere had our zoom lastnight for our hapū hui just as things unfolded nationally.

Unfortunately our weekend hapū hui is postponed due to Aotearoa’s level 4 COVID-19 lockdown. Protecting whānau health and wellbeing is the priority.

A decision for a rescheduled hapū hui date is yet to come as we allow time for whānau to adjust and get home safely. All will be notified asap to next steps, hopefully within the next 7days.

Until then, this has energised our hapū comms team to host a 1-2hr whakawhanaungatanga zoom this Saturday from 2pm-4pm registered uri. This gives us all an opportunity to get to know each other better, to meet and greet, have a health and wellbeing checkin and share, and experience each other’s thoughts, queries, and aspirations for our hapū in a safe environment.

This is not intended as the proposed weekend hui agenda that was sent out, but merely as an opportunity to manaaki everyone and action a live whanaungatanga online space.

All registered uri will be sent an invite via email.

How do you feel about this whānau? Email us your thoughts.

Kia haumaru!
