Trustees meet regularly throughout the year for Tatūnga (decision-making meetings) and Wānanga (workshops). 

Tatūnga

Decision-making meetings occur quarterly and are open to the community. Some meetings may include publicly excluded sections where reports and minutes will be unavailable. Open sections are live-streamed.

Wānanga

Workshops will focus on a specific kaupapa, aligning with our strategic objectives. Stakeholders such as sector leads, iwi leaders, and community groups may be asked to participate. Some Wānanga may include publicly open sections with available reports and minutes. Open sections are live-streamed.
