Komiti meetings

As already notified, we have established a new meeting schedule that will accommodate the majority of our komiti to meet one night a week, which means members on multiple komiti will not need to meet over several evenings. The following schedule has been agreed:

  • 3.30pm-4.30pm (Komiti Mātauraka)
  • 4.30pm-5.30pm (Komiti Whanaukataka, Komiti Whakamahi-alternating each month)
  • 5.30pm-6.30pm (Komiti Taiao)
  • 6.30pm-7.30pm (Komiti Māhakitaka).

In preparation for this year’s Hui-ā-Tau (annual general meeting), Te Rūnanga o Makaawhio wish to notify that we will not accept or process new membership applications received during the period of 5 October-26 October 2015 inclusive. Any applications received during that period will be held for processing on 27 October.
