Annual General Meeting Agenda
















Te Whānau O Waipareira congratulates our Chairman, Ray Hall, who was returned to the board at last nights Annual General Meeting at Hoani Waititi Marae.

Ray, who has been the Chair since 2014, was returned and confirmed uncontested with fellow Board member Moyna Grace, something that humbles and excites him.

“This tells me the confidence and the direction we are setting for Waipareira is endorsed and supported by this whānau. It has been a challenging year for all of us but Waipareira has again been setting the standards, thanks largely to the vision of John Tamihere and work by our frontline kaimahi”.

Financial highlights for 2019-2020 show Waipareira:

  • Achieved a clean audit (unmodified audit opinion) for all entities under the Waipareira umbrella
  • Ended 30th June 2020 with a group net operating surplus of $5.2 million. This compares against the previous year’s net operating surplus of $3.9 million (32% improvement).
  • Total Assets increase from $58.9 million to $65.6 million (11.4% improvement)
  • Equity % Group Assets – 74.6% comparing to last year of 73%
  • Liabilities % Group Assets – 25.4% comparing to last year of 27%.

Waipareira CEO John Tamihere said the organisation was setting new benchmarks, locally, regionally and internationally. Over the past 12 months Waipareira had deployed Whanau Tahi – it’s IT solution

– and Whanau Ora to indigenous and first nation’s people in America, Canada and Australia.

“The only people we can’t convince of just how good our Whanau Tahi IT system and Whanau Ora tools systemic are the beaurecrats in Wellington,” John said.
