Notice of Postponement of Annual General Meeting

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING POSTPONED

Tēnā tatou katoa ngā uri o Ngāti Whātua o Kaipara
 

Ngā Maunga Whakahii o Kaipara Development Trust and Ngā Maunga Whakahii o Kaipara Tari Pupuritaonga Trust wish to announce the postponement of the Annual General Meeting until 2022.

The ongoing disruption and uncertainty caused by the Delta COVID 19 outbreak and lockdown imposed across Tāmaki Makaurau on 17 August 2021 has led to this decision.

The health and safety of our people, in particular our kaumatua and kuia who are extremely vulnerable to the Delta variant is paramount. Ngā Maunga Whakahii o Kaipara are working with the Ministry of Health to develop an in-depth understanding of updated requirements as outlined in the new COVID-19 Traffic Light Protection Framework  introduced on 3 December 2021.

Once the Trust is able to guarantee the safety of our people and ensure updated safety guidelines are strictly adhered to, a new date for the AGM in 2022 will be circulated and a notice submitted to the website.

As a result of this decision and in accordance with the Trust Deed, the election process and voting for Hapū of Marae Trustees and the Kaumātua Trustee will be further delayed.

We are committed to providing an ability to vote for the Hapū of Marae Trustees and the Kaumātua Trustee in person at a physical AGM where the final election results can be announced.

This outcome is despite postal and online voting for the Hapū of the Marae Trustees and the Kaumātua Trustee having closed as advertised Saturday 28 August 2021

Until we are able to guarantee the provision of a physical AGM that maintains the health and safety of everyone involved, the current Hapū of the Marae Trustees and the Kaumātua Trustee will remain as trustee representatives.

Further information on the election and voting process can be located on the Election Services Website. You can also contact them by freephone on 0800 922 822 or via email info@electionservices.co.nz
