We are run online throughout Northland, with an administration office based in Kerikeri. We are also accessible via the Northland Rugby Union office in Whangarei. Our trust deed states that we must have between 4 and 10 Trustees. We currently have eight Trustees that constitute our governance board, including two executive positions: Chairperson and Secretary. We are affiliated with Northland Rugby Union but it does not control or in any way direct our operations.
