ANNUAL PLAN 2021-2022

Ngāti Kahungunu Iwi Incorporated (NKII) recognises the need to review its objectives and align its strategies with the needs of whānau & hapū. In January 2021 the NKII Board reviewed the 2020-2021 Annual plan to evaluate what we have achieved and carefully assess the best way to drive the organisation forward into the new year. The Board identifies the importance of remaining relevant to the current environment and ensuring that our efforts contribute to our 25year vision.
