The National Office in New Zealand shares its Māori name with the New Zealand National
Committee – also known as Tu Te Akaaka Roa. 

The New Zealand staff provide administrative support to Tu Te Akaaka Roa – The New Zealand National Committee (NZNC), the New Zealand Training Committee, as well as the wider range of New Zealand Faculty and Section Committees and the Vocational Education Advisory Body (VEAB). 

Support provided to New Zealand-based Committees encompasses external relations, internal and external policy, internal and external New Zealand communications, and strategic directions. 

Tu Te Akaaka Roa is committed to the Treaty of Waitangi; this commitment is reflected in this Committee’s and each Member’s practice as well as through in the wider mahi (work) undertaken in Aotearoa.  The Te Kaunihera (Māori Health Committee) works alongside the Tu Te Akaaka Roa in these efforts. Supported by staff in Melbourne with input from the NZ National Office, Te Kaunihera, also benefits from the experience, wisdom and leadership of two Kaumātua Mr Wi Keelan and Ms Moe Milne.
