It’s a sign of our success that seven people put up their hands as candidates for the Hui E! Trust Board. Only three could be elected, and we are honoured to welcome Pania Coote, Charlie Moore and Sandy Thompson. Pania is Maori Health Manager for Southern DHB, and is co-Chair of Community Research – which shares an office with Hui E! Charlie is CEO of Community Waitakere and has a long history of leadership and support for the community sector. Sandy heads up Unitec’s Not For Profit Management Course and is involved in a number of NGOs herself – especially ECPAT. Hui E! now has five of its nine trustees based in Auckland, which underscores our efforts to be a truly national organisation – seeking to connect, strengthen, support and promote the whole sector – in every field, and in every part of Aotearoa. More in-depth biographies of the new trustees can be found here.
