These are the main changes in which we are trying to implement within our new Deed of Trust:

A Change of Name

A change of name was recommended to better describe the Trust and the whānau we represent.

Multiple Electorates

Most Trust members whakapapa to multiple Marae, therefore they will now be eligible to register and vote for all maras they whakapapa to. This will be implemented by 2026 at the completion of re-registering all of our Trust-Membership.

Tri-Annual Trustee Elections

Shifting to a single set of Trustee elections once every three years.  This will be implemented for the commencement of the 2023 Elections process.
