December 2022 Update:
As previously announced, the Trust is moving to a new member database system. The system is called “Tiki-OS”, which is a software package built especially for iwi registrations. Click here read more about Tiki-OS.
One of the key benefits of this new system is that members will be able to log in online and view and update their own details. The software is also currently used by some of our whanaunga iwi entities, so we hope that several of our members are already familiar with it.
We are currently working with the software provider to transfer the data to the new system, and please bear with us, as we will be dedicating time to ensuring all of the data is transferred completely and accurately. We are aiming for the new system to be fully functional by March/April 2023.
At this stage, we don’t require anything further from you, and keep an eye out in our upcoming pānui as this project progresses.
