 Election of Taemaro Marae Trustee to Kahukuraariki Trust Board

Taemaro Marae trustees and committee (TMTC) did not support the passing into legislation of the Ngati Kahu Ki Whangaroa Deed of Settlement in August 2017. TMTC actively alongside other marae (Waitaruke, Waimahana and Taupo) and whanau members challenged its mandate, including the overwhelming majority of whanau members who voted at three separate hui-a-iwi a Vote of No Confidence in KTB. Nonetheless, the Crown and its agents continued its support.  Substantive issues of concern have not been resolved.

Kahukuraariki Trust Board (KTB) have advertised they will be calling for elections for permanent trustees from marae in April 2018.  As per previous notices to whānau TMTC have challenged KTB processes including their election processes that sought to undermine the mana of the marae to nominate its delegates to KTB.  We want to be prepared for this election and ensure we have the best person for the role with the manadate of the whanau of Taemaro marae.

Please come home for the hui and wānanga on the 2nd & 3rd January 2018.

In preparation for the hui we ask individual whanau members to consider whether they or a whanau member they know have the requisite skills and commitment to represent Taemaro Marae to the KTB.

We strongly encourage those interested to register their interest by coming to our Taemaro Marae AGM and general hui on the 2nd & wānanga on the 3rd January to make yourself known to whanau, and to be part of the discussions about what we need from our delegate, a the process we will use for managing the nomination of a Taemaro Marae representative to KTB and how we will support that person.

Representing our marae is a privilege and it is demanding. It is therefore important that our representative is fully engaged with Taemaro Marae, represents the collective views of Taemaro Marae and reports back to Taemaro Marae.
