Legal duties of LALC board members

The LALC Service has developed a governance toolkit for LALCs which provides information on the key legal duties of LALC board members (and staff) under the Aboriginal Land Rights Act 1983 (NSW) and other laws.

This plain language toolkit has five parts and includes scenarios based on common situations that arise in LALCs and the not-for-profit sector more generally, as well as tips to help board members comply with their legal duties.
