Good governance in small boards: Local Aboriginal Land Councils and Non-Government Organisations

Local Aboriginal Land Councils (LALCs) and Non-Government Organisations (NGOs) can face similar challenges: their board members are usually voluntary, they often have limited staff numbers, and are expected to meet varied responsibilities in their communities. This workshop covers a range of topics and will include discussion about how LALC and NGO board members and staff all play a role in building good governance in their organisations.

Who should attend?

This workshop is open to board members and staff of LALCs and NGOs.


3.5 hours including a 15–minute break
