Ngā Pou Mana, Executive Board.
We hold an annual Hui Ā Tau for our membership delegates to provide an opportunity for whakawhanaungatanga, support, sharing of information, ideas and resources to feed the wairua of our members so that they can go back to their studies or mahi feeling rejuvenated, inspired and recognised for their continued hard work in the area of health and well being.
The Hui Ā Tau 2017 will be held at Korongata Marae, 9 Maraekakaho Road, Hastings, on Thursday the 30th of November 9am-6pm, and Friday the 1st of December 2017 between 9am-3.30pm. We will also be making use of Te Tai Whenua O Heretaunga Takarangi Conference room on Friday the 1st of December for presentation purposes.
The name of our Hui Ā Tau is “Te Takoha Whakatipuranga” representing a gift of giving and growth. The theme or whakatauaki that we feel is fitting for this hui is “Ko te manu kai i te miro, nōna te ngahere. Ko te manu kai i te mātauranga, nōna te ao”, representing the fruits or hua of coming together for our hui and sharing knowledge.
