NGĀTI TOA ROADSHOW AND CONSTITUTIONAL REVIEW
Ahakoa iti whetū, Ranginui pōkēkē ao, uhia kia ngaro e kore e ngaro
It is an exciting time for Ngāti Toa as we embark on a journey to meet our aspirations as a strong, vibrant and influential iwi, firmly grounded in our cultural identity and leading change to enable whānau wellbeing and prosperity.
With this in mind, our Rūnanga Board have approved a Strategic Business Plan for our organisation which has a series of actions to be undertaken over the next financial year. In order to ensure that we have hit the mark, we are looking to undertake a series of hui around the motu, and via Zoom, to korero with our people about our plan to achieve the dreams and aspirations we all have for the future of Ngāti Toa.
As part of these hui, we will also be speaking to our whānau about the changes to the Rūnanga Rules and Trust Deed which fall out of the constitutional review process commissioned by the Board in 2018 and approved by the Board in 2019 for recommendation to the Iwi.
The hui are scheduled as follows:
The changes to the Te Rūnanga o Toa Rangatira Rules and the Trust Deed of the Toa Rangatira Trust require a vote.
Voting will be available online at www.ngatitoa.iwi.nz or via postal vote. Voting papers have been sent out to all registered iwi members. If you are not registered with the Rūnanga but are eligible to be registered an wish to vote then you will be able to register during the voting process.

Voting on the Rūnanga Rules is open to all Adult Members of the Rūnanga. Voting on changes to the Trust Deed is open to all Adult Uri o Toa Rangatira. If you turn 18 during the voting period you are eligible to vote.
