Te Matapihi He Tirohanga Mō Te Iwi Trust is seeking champions of Māori housing outcomes to take up new governance roles within our organisation.

Te Matapihi is an independent voice for the Māori housing sector. Our vision is an Aotearoa where Māori are living in healthy, appropriate, and secure housing of their own choosing. Our mission is to support the growth and development of the Māori housing sector, and to promote improved housing outcomes for Māori.

Having been in operation since 2011, Te Matapihi recently underwent a governance review to ensure we remain effective in supporting Māori housing aspirations. The key recommendations of this review were:

  • The establishment of a National Māori Housing Council – Te Kaunihera Puāwaitanga: the council will be comprised of regionally based representation. As well as providing a forum for discussion of regional Māori housing issues, the council will lead the development of a national Māori housing strategy by the sector, and monitor the Te Matapihi Executive Board’s activities towards implementation of that strategy.
     
  • The appointment of new trustees to the Te Matapihi Executive Board: the current composition of regionally representative trustees will be replaced with a trusteeship whose skills and expertise are closely aligned to the strategic priorities of the Māori housing sector. New trustees will be appointed by the National Māori Housing Council.

Therefore, we are seeking expressions of interests from individuals active in the pursuit of Māori housing outcomes to take up governance roles, either as inaugural members of the National Māori Housing Council, or as new trustees of the Te Matapihi Executive Board.

If you or someone you know is interested in leading a national organisation committed to improving housing outcomes for Māori, we would like to hear from you.

To apply for the available governance roles, please complete the attached form and submit it, along with a CV outlining your relevant skills and experience to whakamohio@tematapihi.org.nz.

Applications close at 5pm on Tuesday 31 October.

Te Matapihi aim to make all appointments by 22 December, and we will inform all of our
stakeholders of the results.
