Ngati Porou living around the motu are invited to attend a final round of TRONPnui Trust Deed Review hui to learn about the proposed changes to the TRONPnui Trust Deed and how Ngati Porou iwi members can participate in the final part of the Review Process.

These hui are an opportunity for all Ngati Porou to be informed and participate in final discussions about the Trust Deed Review. The TRONPnui Trust Deed is the document that established TRONPnui and sets the mandatory rules for how TRONPnui governs and manages the pre and post settlement assets (currently worth approximately $232 million) on behalf of all Ngati Porou. 

A five year review was built into the Trust Deed to review the effectiveness of arrangements set out in the Trust Deed and to recommend any alterations. Five years gave reasonable time and experience to see if the Deed and TRONPnui structure were working as intended and provided an opportunity for changes and improvements to the Deed to be considered.

Since the Trust Deed Review process began in October 2016, the board have held a series of information and consultation hui with Ngati Porou, as well as engaged an Independent Reviewer to analyse submissions and report back his recommendations on how the feedback translated in terms of potential changes to the Deed.

With a final round of consultation hui set to start in mid-April, the Trust Deed Review will conclude with a vote on the proposed recommendations followed by a Special General Meeting to confirm changes to the deed in June 2018 (details to follow).

For more information about the hui, contact TRONPnui Administrator, Albie McFarlane on Tel 0800676768.
