Te Komiti Nui Leadership

Te Komiti Nui has also had a change of leadership, with Anaru Te Amo stepping down from his role as Chair after several years. Komiti Nui would like to thank Anaru for the valuable contribution he made as Chair, resulting in highlights such as the signing of the Terms of Negotiation and his work with the Central North Island Iwi Collective. Anaru will continue to contribute to the Trust in his role as a trustee.

Pauline Tangohau has agreed to take on the role as interim Chair. Te Komiti Nui expects to have the new Chair appointed in the first quarter of 2015.
