Since last year’s event ‘Te Huarahi Hōu: The new pathway’ of which Jim was the discussion facilitator, there has been much interest in how we can support the next generation of Māori leaders on their pathway to governance.

So, how do we break down the big picture and make governance a real, attainable and interesting path for our future leaders?

Jim will draw on his experiences and share his thoughts on how whānau and fellow directors can encourage Māori to become future leaders in governance.

We will also be announcing the winner of the new local kaupapa "Te Moana a Toi - Kaitohu-Taura 2022."

Ka pu te ruha ka hao te rangatahi
