BACKGROUND

The Trust Deed was formed on the 3rd November 2015.

On the 8th December 2018 as per Section 4 of the Trust Deed, the first Trustee Election was held. This is the second rotation of elections since the Trust Deed was formed. 

The Trustees are now in their sixth calendar year and an Election process will take place during the AGM being held on Saturday 4th December 2021. 

The two retiring Trustees are Olivia Thompson and Kathleen Kireka. Timoti Gemmell has indicated his resignation half way trhrough his tenure, leaving one 3 year vacancy.  

Nominations for Trustee candidates are now open and will  be declared closed at the Ohiti AGM when these elections will be conducted. 

ELECTION PROCESS

  • Nominations are  now open. If you are interested in being a candidate to be a Trustee, you must start the process of getting the nomination form filled in. You need a nominator and a seconder/witness who are both land owners who will be present at the AGM meeting.  

  • There are two types of vacancies on the Trust Board, one three (3) year term vacancy and two - six (6) year term vacancies. Candidates can be nominated for one or the other and will indicate this on the nomination form.  

  • In the nomination form, there is a section for a candidate profile. A candidate profile is like a CV that summarises who you are, your experience, skills and aspirations and basically tells voters why they should vote for you.  

  • Nominations can be handed to the secretary Ruth Wong – prior to or on the day of the AGM Election which is Saturday 4 December 2021. In future, nominations will close prior to the AGM Election so information can be sent to owners prior to the meeting for postal voting. 

  • On arrival to the AGM on Saturday 4 December 2021, all attendees will sign the attendance register. Only those eligible to vote will be given a voting form that will coincide with a register for eligible land owner voters. The voting paper will show a unique number with voting for the two (2) types of vacancies as noted above. The voting paper will coincide with the registers unique number.  

  • At the AGM Election, the Election Officer will explain the process and declare the election open and invite all submissions of the nominations to be handed in. There will be a short time allocated for this to happen, so it is important that if you are interested in being nominated, that you do the paper work prior to the meeting.

  • When all nominations are received, the Election Officer will declare the nominations closed and peruse the nominations received and announce the eligible candidates or nominees names. If the right amount of nominations are received for the vacancies, they will automatically be appointed without a vote, however if more nominations are received, a voting process will occur and only those land owners with the voting papers will be able to vote. 

  • The vote will be by secret ballot. Land owners will vote for one of the two (2) types of vacancies. This will be explained by the Election Officer. 

  • Candidates may have an opportunity to share their aspirations before the voting takes place or if they choose, the Election Officer can read out their candidate profiles.  

  • When everyone understands, the voting part of the election, voting is declared open and the secret ballot takes place. When all eligible land owners have voted, the voting is declared closed. 

  • The Election Officer takes the ballot box to a private area to count the votes in accordance with the attendance register of eligible voters. Candidates can send a scrutineer in with the Election Officer if they wish, to witness this process.    

  • The Election Officer announces the highest polling candidates as successful and congratulates the landowners. 

  • The 2021 Triennial Election is declared closed.
