Trust Waikato trustees walking

Meet Our Trustees

Each community trust is governed by a Board of Trustees appointed by the Minister of Finance. Trustees must reside in the specified area of the trust and are appointed for the contribution they can make with skills and community knowledge. They are tasked with providing good governance, and each board meets regularly to discuss grants, investments, finance, audit and risk management and any other governance issues that may arise.
