Annual Planning and Board Priorities

In September 2001 Ngāti Kahungunu Iwi Incorporated met with Kahungunu whānau at the marae (marae hikoi), taiwhenua (Board meetings), and a number of hui to allow whānau to share their aspirations and contribute to the 25-year vision (to 2026) for Ngāti Kahungunu Iwi. Information from these hui was gathered and collated into the Ngāti Kahungunu Iwi 25-Year Vision. The organisation continues to align its Annual Plans and work projects to the 2026 Vision.
