Experience and innovation in spectrum trust mix
The chair of Te Huarahi Tika Trust hopes a board refresh will bring new ideas and energy to the Maori spectrum body.
A pan-Maori electoral college has appointed Sir Harawira Gardiner and accountants George Reedy and Missy Te Kanawa to the trust.
Te Huarahi Tika chair Daphne Luke says with long-serving board member Antony Royal retiring because of term limits, and Hautaki chair Mavis Mullins and herself also due to step down soon, it was important to put strong leadership in place.
"Sir Wira brings with him alot of experience around governance and review work. We'll be looking to him to give some guidance around a review of the organisation perhaps, what we could be doing better, are we match fit. Missy is a really innovative, creative mind and she can give us alot of ideas about where we can be headed" she says.
Daphne Luke says a lack of resources has made it hard to ask people to volunteer their time for the board.
