Following consultations last year, there are a number of amendments to be made to the Deeds of both the Ngāti Koata Trust and Te Pātaka a Ngāti Koata Trust. There are three Proposed Amendments that we will be voting on at the September Annual General Meeting, and two issues for Discussion.

We have prepared a booklet and will hold consultation hui to help the iwi understand the proposed changes, make submissions, and to have your say.
This booklet is available here on the website, has been mailed to all registered members, is on Facebook, and will also be in the Haratua | May Issue of our Email Pānui.
In the booklet are the proposed changes, an explanation of the changes, and some questions and discussion points for the hui.
The Trust will be on the road in early May. Please come along to our hui to learn more, and have your say.
