Governance Matters

Our Constitution

Governance matters to us. We take great pride in being an Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisation that is properly governed, is accountable to its stakeholders and meets all its legal obligations and compliance requirements.

Our constitution is our governing instrument, deriving its legitimacy from the Corporations Act and the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profits Commission Act. It defines our purpose and objectives and establishes the rules for how we are run. Its authority comes from our members, who vote to adopt and amend it. You can view/download a copy here.
