On behalf of the Chairperson, Te Matapihi invites Māori organisations and individuals with an interest in housing to a Special General Meeting (SGM) of the Te Matapihi Board. The purpose of the SGM is to amend the Te Matapihi Trust Deed, which will strengthen the role of Te Matapihi as a strategic and effective advocate for the Māori housing sector.
The purpose of the Special General Meeting is to adopt the varied Trust Deed, which will be given effect by the Deed of Variation. The purpose of the Deed of Variation, and the amendments to the Trust Deed, is to enable the Trust to transition to a more fit-for-purpose governance and organisational structure to advance the Trust’s new strategic direction. This will strengthen the role of Te Matapihi as a strategic and effective advocate for the Māori housing sector, and enable the organisation to provide a broader function and set of services to our sector. Independent legal counsel has been engaged to develop the proposed Trust Deed, and to support the transition to the new structure.
Under the Deed of Variation, and the amended Trust Deed, the Trustees will establish 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, and to monitor the Board’s activities toward implementation of that strategy.
There will be tea and coffee available on arrival from 9am. The meeting will commence at 10am and conclude at 12.30pm, followed by a light lunch.
