The TRONPnui Trust Deed review process represents a significant and exciting opportunity for all of Ngati Porou to reflect upon how Te Runanganui o Ngati Porou and its subsidiaries, are governing and managing your assets. As the ultimate shareholder of the Runanganui, whanau and hapu have the opportunity to change the way things are being done or ensure those aspects that are operating effectively are kept.
