Marae management

Management

The business is run by an operational team which is comprised of an Iwi Relations Advisor and a Marae Administrator. The team is supported by Auckland Airport. The guiding principles for operating the Marae are to uphold the Kingitanga, honour the protocols of Tainui kawa, and to operate with cultural and professional integrity.

The governance structure of the Marae is through a Board of Trustees with three representatives each appointed by Auckland Airport and by Tainui; a total of six trustees.  

Local Kaumatua and Kuia are engaged to provide cultural advice on tikanga and kawa including the facilitation of protocols associated with Maori ceremonies.
