KMAC was delighted to be awarded a finalist of the National 2018 Indigenous Governance Awards. Winners were announced on 23rd November at an awards ceremony in Melbourne and KMAC congratulates the co-winners Nyambu Buru Yawaru and Institute of Urban Indigenous Health.
These awards recognise and celebrate outstanding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander-led organisations that make extraordinary contributions to communities and the nation.
This is a significant collective accomplishment that acknowledges the strength of Robe River Kuruma community leadership and which is embedded throughout our organisations. The community’s long-term vision, forward-planning, courage and perseverance has empowered KMAC to reach this success for and on behalf of the community to be recognised as a high achiever in Indigenous governance.
I congratulate each and every Robe River Kuruma member, the KMAC Board members (both past and present), and the KMAC team. I also pay tribute to the strength of those leaders who are no longer with us and who led the community and KMAC on this important path.
Aoife McMahon, Interim Chief Executive Officer
KMAC is honoured to be in such great company as a finalist, and we are inspired to share our stories of success from the Robe River Kuruma community when the awards are held again in 2020.
