Ngā Kaitatau Māori o Aotearoa (National Maori Accountants Network)
E nga rau rangatira ma, he mihi tenei ki a koutou, nau mai, haere mai.
At a hui held in Wellington in 2002 it was identified that Maori Special Interest Groups (SIGs) in Auckland and Wellington had similar objectives and activities. It was recognised that an opportunity existed to strategically link individual SIGs into a national body.
In order to establish an infrastructure for a sustainable network and a solid foundation for a national entity all members agreed that strong regional groups were required. Therefore during 2004 the Waikato-Bay of Plenty SIG was formed to capture the third largest population of Maori Accountants.
Ngā Kaitatau Māori o Aotearoa (National Maori Accountants Network) was offically formed in 2004 after electing a steering committee of seven members to achieve a number of key objectives. Some of these included:
drafting a constitution
developing a strategic plan
building a relationship with NZICA
Since 2004 a number of other significant events have taken place including:
five annual Hui-a-Tau in Auckland, Wellington and Waikato\Bay of Plenty
membership has grown to over 150 members
strategic and business partnerships have been developed between Ngā Kaitatau Māori o Aotearoa, NZICA, Manu Ao, ASB, Te Wānanga o Aotearoa and Te Hunga Roia Māori o Aotearoa
organisational developments such as a secretarial appointment, formal branding and our website
