Update from the Te Matapihi SGM

Our Special General Meeting was held at the Holiday Inn Auckland Airport on Friday 17th February. At the hui we passed our new Trust Deed, which will enable Te Matapihi to transition to a more fit-for-purpose structure. Under the Deed of Variation, and the amended Trust Deed, our current Trustees will be the 'establishment team' for Te Kaunihera Puāwaitanga – the National Māori Housing Council.

The purpose of the National Council is to enable regional representatives to discuss Māori housing issues and interests of significance to their rohe and to lead the maintenance and ongoing development of a National Māori Housing Strategy by the Sector, to monitor the Board’s activities toward implementation of that strategy, and to appoint the skills-based Executive Board.

Our Board will be working hard over the coming months to develop the Terms of Reference for the Kaunihera, and our Board and Staff will be getting out into the regions over the coming year to keep our sector informed and engaged.
