As of December 2022, we have updated the HDEC terms of reference. This forms part of the longer-term project of modernising and reforming the HDECs.


The changes that we are implementing currently through updates to the Terms of Reference are: 

  • increased member daily rate
  • embedding Te Tiriti o Waitangi
  • refining member categories – clarification for lay membership and introducing Deputy Chairperson roles
  • refining member responsibilities 
  • adding training requirements
  • extending HDEC membership term length to 5 years.
