Notice is hereby given that the 2019 Annual General Meeting of Ngā Pou Mana Māori Allied Health Professionals of Aotearoa (“the Society”) will be held at Huria Marae, 1 Te Kaponga St, Brookfield, Tauranga 3110, during the Hui-Ā-Tau on Saturday, 28 September 2019 commencing at 430pm.
Current executive members wanting to stay on the Executive include:
- Dr Teah Carlson (Current Chair)
- Krystal Harrison (Current Treasurer)
- Caitlin Balkin (Current Secretary)
- Danielle Squire
- James Makowharemahihi
- Tumanako Tomo
- George Kingi
Executive members that have stood down this year include:
- Carmen Fairlie
- Bobbie-Jo Wilson
NPM want to take the time to acknowledge those who have been on the Executive Board for the past year and your contribution to the kaupapa. He aroha mutunga kore! We wish Carmen and Bobbie-Jo all the best and hope to see you both around at a wānanga or two!
NPM are therefore looking for expressions of interest for TWO positions on the Executive Committee. One student representative (undergraduate student under 25 years of age) and one representative willing to step into a Co-Chair role (governance experience for this role is advantageous).
If you are interested in one of these positions, please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know. You must be at the AGM to be elected to the Executive Committee.
NPM have been going through a Constitutional Review for the past few months. We have acknowledged that this is a BIG piece of mahi, as we try to decolonise our Constitutional rules/tikanga. We have decided to do this as a staged approach due to the size of the task ahead... so while we are suggesting some changes to support NPM to flourish over the coming months/years, we also acknowledge we have a long way to go in having a document that is truly representative of our unique Te Ao Māori worldview. We ask that the members support the resolutions which aim to do the following:
- create a membership that is more inclusive
- include more of our tikanga māori to help us make decisions
- include a Tangata Whenua allied health perspective
- 3 year term for the Executive Committee so we can do a better job for members
- One student representative on the board as a "tuakana/teina" pathway
