Aboriginal Legal Service kicks off board renewal process

14 March 2024

The Aboriginal Legal Service (NSW/ACT) Limited (ALS) is inviting community to apply for membership – the first step towards becoming a director and serving on the organisation’s board.

“As one of Australia’s first Aboriginal community-controlled organisations, the ALS is owned and governed by the communities we serve. Now it’s time to elect the representatives for the next three years,” said Jason Allan, ALS Chairperson and a proud Kamilaroi and Ngunnawal man.

By stepping up as a representative of your community and becoming a member or director, you can help shape the ALS’ future.

Register to receive an application pack by 28 March if you are an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander person living in NSW and the ACT who wishes to apply for membership. Full eligibility criteria and registration details can be found at www.alsnswact.org.au/election.

“This is a great opportunity for mob wanting to support the fight for justice. By stepping up as a representative of your community and becoming a member or director, you can help shape the ALS’ future,” Mr Allan said.

Up to 30 members will be elected, then those elected members will appoint 12 from their ranks to become directors and form the ALS Board. New members and directors will take office from 1 July 2024.
