EAST COAST RFU ANNUAL REPORT – 2018
Ko Hikurangi te maunga
Ko Waiapu te awa
Ko Ngati Porou te iwi
Tihei Mauri Ora!
2018 was another dynamic year on and off the field for Ngati Porou East Coast Rugby.
Attendees of the 2017 AGM participated in some significant changes to our Union. We officially adopted the name Ngati Porou East Coast and after three years of constitutional review, made two key changes:
1. Voting rights of Life Members were amended
2. The management committee/executive now comprises five, with the power to co-opt two further members.
Our board have worked hard creating stability for the Union, and updating our new strategy. The current board are in the final year of the first three year term and I acknowledge their voluntary contributions and thank you all.
Our finance performance remains positive, maintaining our surplus reporting record. The achievement of completing our new office building while maintaining this performance is something to be proud of, and leaves a lasting asset for the Union.
While NZR funding is the backbone of our operations, sponsorship’s and community grants are essential to our success and we thank all
our financial contributors.
