Our Associate Advisors Programme

HMK Programme

He Manu Korihi aims to provide a pathway to enhance governance skills by preserving and passing-on knowledge from one generation to another. The long-term goal of this programme is to encourage a new generation of owners and beneficial owners to be more actively involved in the mahi of the whenua and in the boardroom.

This programme will provide owners with an opportunity to gain experience in the governance of the Trust and its other activities, with a view to be future Advisory Trustees. As part of the programme we would look to involve applicants with a keen interest in growing their knowledge about the Trust and its activities.

 They will need to be dedicated to contributing towards the ongoing development of the Trust and be confident to sit at the Trust table, learn and get amongst it. It is anticipated that Associate Advisors be appointed for two years.
