Tautoko Network

The former Volunteer Coordinator’s Network and Not-for-Profit Managers Network have been merged to form the new Tautoko Network. “Tautoko” relates to support and advocacy, and we believe that combining the two previous forums will allow more accessible information sharing within the community sector. We are also putting together a programme of events in the Hurunui, Selwyn and Waimakariri Districts; those meetings will also be included in the Tautoko Network listings.
