The NSW Local Government Aboriginal Network has been operating since 1988. The conference provides information exchange and acts as a forum for discussion on Local Government issues relating to Aboriginal communities, business and the wider community.
The aim of the conference is to provide an exciting and interesting forum for enhancing the profile of Aboriginal communities, their skills and culture and discussion on current issues such as employment strategies, enterprise and cultural development and policies.
The conference has grown since been established in 1988, I wish to pay my respects to late Cr Pat Dixon who was instrumental in getting this forum established, she was an inspiring woman.
The theme for this year’s Conference is “Our Living Culture – Past, Present and Future”.
On behalf of the Executive committee we wish to thank Tweed Shire Council for all their hard work in getting the conference together, this year`s the conference is going to be very informative with the following presentations:
