Nomination of Candidates

Nominations for Trustees of the Taranaki Trust for 2013 are now closed.

As you are aware, Leanne Horo, Peter Moeahu and John Niwa must retire by rotation as existing Trustees of the Taranaki Iwi Trust and as Establishment Trustees of Te Kāhui o Taranaki (the new Taranaki Iwi Post Settlement Governance Entity).  We also have a further vacancy due to the resignation of Wayne Mulligan.

For clarity sake, four successful candidates will act as Trustees on the Taranaki Iwi Trust and also as Establishment Trustees on Te Kāhui o Taranaki Trust.

The three retiring Trustees are eligible to stand for re-election and all three retiring Trustees have confirmed their intention to do so.

General Information

As you are aware the term for a Trustee on the Taranaki Iwi Trust is three (3) years.  However, in the event that settlement legislation is passed and the Taranaki Iwi Trust is wound up and its assets vested in Te Kāhui o Taranaki Iwi Trust within three (3) years, the term as a Trustee on the Taranaki Iwi Trust may be shorter.
