Core Stakeholder Engagement Consultation

YMAC’s Core Stakeholder Engagement Consultation (CSEC) is helping to inform the delivery of our Strategic Plan 2021-2025.

In general, the consultation is:

  1. Seeking guidance from YMAC’s core stakeholders regarding their collective priorities and aspirations.
  2. Informing future direction/s of and services offered by YMAC (with a particular focus on the post-determination space).
  3. Helping provide on focus what additional advocacy, information sharing, and capacity building work YMAC should be progressing.

As part of this work, YMAC has hosted two community regional roundtables – one for the Yamatji region in November 2022, and another for the Marlpa region in February 2023 – as well as a roundtable for Prescribed Body Corporate (PBC) CEOs in March 2024.

The information gathered through this process has proven critical to YMAC, to take into account and make practical changes to improve how we can help better inform people and corporations in our regions, and assist them in other ways by targeting our efforts and resources where they are most needed.

Further, the roundtables also inform YMAC’s delivery of our Native Title Forums.

Current CSEC recommendations being progressed by YMAC:

As we work towards addressing each of these recommendations, updates will be provided to PBCs via usual channels, including YMAC’s PBC eNews.

Country is our mother, the provider and keeper of cultural belongings. Country and Culture go together. You can’t have one without the other.

Yamatji Marlpa Aboriginal Corporation respectfully acknowledges the Traditional Owners and custodians throughout Western Australia, and on whose Country we work. We acknowledge and respect their deep connection to their lands and waterways.

We honour and pay respect to Elders, and to their ancestors who survived and cared for Country.

Our offices are located on Whadjuk Country, Southern Yamatji Country, Yinggarda Country, Kariyarra Country, and Yawuru Country. We recognise the continuing culture, traditions, stories and living cultures on these lands and commit to building a brighter future together.
