Interim Kaimahi Advisory Committee

This committee represents our staff voice in the development and review of key strategic matters with our Te Pūkenga Council. The current Interim Committee will also be tasked with designing and testing the Committee framework and processes.

Each Te Pūkenga ITP Business Division has elected a representative to the Staff Committee, and in turn they have elected two Co-Chairs, as well as representatives through to Te Poari Akoranga.

Heath Sawyer has been appointed as the Committee representative who will sit on Te Pūkenga Council.
