Karuah Local Aboriginal Land Council
Karuah Local Aboriginal Land Council (LALC) represents the local Karuah people.
The functions of a LALC Board are to:
- direct and control the affairs of the Land Council in accordance with the Aboriginal Land Rights Act and the council's Community Land and Business Plan
- facilitate communication between the members and the New South Wales Aboriginal Land Council (NSWALC)
- review the performance of the Land Council in carrying out its functions and achieving its objectives
- any other function conferred by the Act.
The Act established the Land Council structure in a way that has sought to achieve a high degree of participation and involvement by every Aboriginal person in the affairs of their local community.
The on-going priority for NSWALC is to ensure that all of our Local Aboriginal Land Councils are afforded timely advice and direction on matters relevant to the Aboriginal Land Rights Act, and supported through high-level training and development to build their capacity to strategically plan and manage their affairs at their local level.
