Kia ora e te whānau,

The Playcentre Aotearoa AGM was held on 31st July 2021.  No decisions were made during the meeting.  The Trustee Board are currently operating under clause 11.4 of the constitution, in that the status quo will remain until the AGM papers have been addressed.

On August 4th, the Board received a request (as per Clause 10.11.1) for an SGM from Kia Puawai o te Akoranga, Tauranga Moana rōpū, Kapa tautoko ki Whanganui-a-tara, Puriri whakamaru o Central Districts.  The Board carefully considered this request.  When reviewing the supporting minutes we noted the speed at which the meetings were called and the low number of attendees at each meeting.  Cumulatively these factors make this request invalid. 

However, the Trustees remain concerned for the wellbeing of the organisation and our members.  We recognise the need for respectful discussions supported by the Principles of Āta.  Having considered our scheduled whare hui (29-31 Oct) we wish to provide the opportunity for a SGM kanohi ki te kanohi during that weekend. 

We call for resolutions to be submitted in the proper manner for the SGM by 12pm, Friday 20th August (the required format for resolution papers can be found here). 

The Trustee Board is aware that information/notice has been circulated to Centres regarding a SGM. Please be informed that this notice has been circulated by a group of members and not the Trustee Board. The Trustee Board have not approved or authorised the contents of the notice. The Trustee Board will provide further information regarding the SGM to members in due course.
