The foundation of MWWL are the branches based in the community.
We have eight regions in Aotearoa me Te Waipounamu, based on the Māori Land Court districts and each region has a Regional Council that co-ordinates its branches. At this stage we only have one overseas branch, based in Perth.
The governing body of MWWL is the National Council which is made up of delegates of every branch who meet once a year at National Conference.
The National Executive of ten, comprises the management committee and we have a national office in Wellington with four staff.
We are governed by our Constitution and Standing Orders.
