We are seeking board members to join Tāhono

Inclusive Aotearoa Collective Tāhono invites expressions of interest from individuals who are interested in serving as inaugural trust board members. We are seeking experienced professionals who can bring a diverse skill set and expertise to contribute to the strategic decision-making process of our organisation. 

As a member of our board, you will have the opportunity to help shape IACT’s current and future mahi.  We are looking for between four and seven trustees to create a diverse board of trustees from different community groups, representing and contributing from a range of varying life experiences. We are looking for two board co-chairs, a treasurer, a secretary, and general board members.

As Te Tiriti partners, supporting Tino Rangatiratanga is core to our work. Our organisation upholds the treaty through our organisational structure, policies and programmes – a practical example of our commitment to Te Tiriti o Waitangi can be found in our co-governance leadership model.

Applicants should have a good understanding of Te Tiriti o Waitangi, as well as good governance principles and compliance responsibilities. We welcome applicants who can bring lived experience of working with diverse communities and experiences, in a way that is accessible and inclusive. Manaaki is essential in the operation of our team, and we always seek to understand each other and challenges with aroha, curiosity and respect.

These roles involve a time commitment of two hours per month and will be based online, correspondence taking place through Zoom, email, and phone. You will need to have access to a device and reliable internet to attend these hui.
