[ARCHIVE] Notice: Nominations now open – Trustee Elections 2017

Last Updated: 26 April 2017

Te Kāhui o Taranaki Iwi Trust (the Trust) is the PSGE entity established to receive and manage the Treaty settlement assets of Taranaki Iwi. It replaces the former Taranaki Iwi Trust. The Trust is governed by seven trustees who are elected on a rotational basis.

The Trust requires an election for the vacancies of two existing trustees. For clarity, the vacancy created by the retirement of Tokatumoana Kevin Walden is an ordinary vacancy while the vacancy created by the retirement of Puna Wano-Bryant will be an extraordinary vacancy. The retiring trustees are eligible to stand for re-election if they choose and provided they still meet the eligibility criteria.

The Trust now invites nominations to fill these two positions. Nominations must be made on an official nomination form and close at 5pm on Thursday 25 May 2017. If more than one nomination is received for each vacancy, elections will be held by postal and internet voting with both voting periods closing at 5pm on Friday 21 July 2017.
