Call for Nominations for Maungaharuru-Tangitū Trust


We hope this finds you safe and well in your own whānau bubble.  We have two issues to raise in relation to MTT & Trustee nominations:

1) Due to the Coronavirus lockdown and restrictions on hui, MTT has decided to postpone the MTT Hui ā-Tau (AGM).  Therefore, in accordance with clause 7.1 of our Trust Deed, the AGM scheduled for Saturday 1 August will be postponed to Saturday 26 September 2020, starting at 10am at Tangoio Marae.

2) The Call for Nominations for the two vacant MTT Trustee positions that were due by next Tuesday 14 April has also been postponed.  The new dates will be advertised as soon as possible.  See below for the Trustee Nominations process.

If you have any questions, please contact, (06) 835-3300 or 0800 TANGOIO (all calls are being diverted).

Kia Haumaru

Nā mātau,

MTT Trustees
