Community Panel

The Otara Waterways and Lake Trust is supported by a Community Panel (formally the Steering group) – a representative group of local businesses, community groups, environmental organisations, educational institutions, mana whenua, local board members and Auckland Council representatives.

The Community Panel plays a key role in providing strategic advice to the Trust and has the ability to elect two Trustees.

The Community Panel meets bi-monthly and welcomes new partners and contributors. Please Contact Us for more information
