Core Stakeholder Engagement Consultation

YMAC’s Core Stakeholder Engagement Consultation will help to inform the implementation of the Strategic Plan 2021-2025.

In general, the consultation intends to:

The consultation is being undertaken in two main, concurrent phases, each focusing on different categories of YMAC’s core stakeholders:

1: Engagement with individuals, including YMAC Members, as well as native title claimants and/or Common Law Holders from YMAC’s representative regions that the organisation may or may not represent. Noting, individuals may fit into multiple categories.

2: Engagement with corporations, specifically Prescribed Bodies Corporate (PBCs)/Registered Native Title Bodies Corporate (RNTBCs)* operating in YMAC’s representative regions. Noting, this will include corporations to which YMAC does and does not currently provide services, and is open to current Chairs, Directors, and staff.

If you would like to know more or be involved in either of these consultations, please contact YMAC Projects Coordinator, Teri O’Neill (0418 115 908, or

* Following a native title determination, a corporation must be established to manage the native title rights and interests of the native title holders. These corporations are known as ‘PBCs’. Once a PBC is registered with the National Native Title Tribunal (NNTT), it then becomes an ‘RNTBC’. However, the term ‘PBC’ is commonly used to refer to both PBCs and RNTBCs and will be used as such for the purposes of this consultation.
