A board's success rests on the skills and commitment of the directors or trustees who make decisions on behalf of the owners and continuously make sure the organisation is moving in the right direction.
Crucial to the role is the ability to work for the good of the organisation as a whole. Even if a director/trustee has been elected or appointed to represent a particular group, as a board member his/her duty is to consider the overall success of the organisation.
Directors/trustees on Māori organisations are often working not just for the current owners of the organisation, but for future generations of owners.
