Independent board director

Yinhawangka Aboriginal Corporation RNTBC

Yinhawangka Aboriginal Corporation Registered Native Title Body Corporate (YAC) is an important community organisation for the native title and traditional custodians of Yinhwangka country in the Pilbara region, with income derived from mining royalties controlled via the Yinhawangka Trust. The Office of the Registrar of Indigenous Corporations (ORIC) placed YAC under special administration on 16 May 2019 to initiate and ensure corporate reform. That reform will include a new governance framework and the appointment of a new board of directors. 
YAC seeks a specialist independent board director to be appointed initially to an advisory group for the period of the special administration. On the completion of the special administration, the advisory group will be invited to form the new board as non-executive directors to strengthen the leadership, governance and development of the organisation.
