This depends on the sort of trust. If this is something like a Maori trust where there are a number of trustees, the trust deed will usually refer to the correct method of appointing a proxy to vote for you. Normally this would be by a letter, and sometimes the trust deed will require that notice be given before the meeting. If this is the appropriate form of trust I suggest you look at first instance at the trust deed or the order from the Maori land Court setting up the trust. Please let me know if you have a different sort of trust
