The Local Government Regional NAIDOC Awards committee is the driving force behind our annual awards event.
The committee is made up of Aboriginal and non Aboriginal respresentatives from Shoalhaven, Kiama, Shellharbour and Wollongong councils, who support the host council to develop the awards in accordance with the wishes and expectations of our Aboriginal community Aboriginal representatives include, the four council's Aboriginal Community Liaison Officers and representation from the host council's Aboriginal Reference Group or local Aboriginal community.
The awards are a not for profit event with all funds going directly into the award night.
Critical funding for the awards comes from each of the four participating council's, business and community sponsors, ticket sales and small State and Federal NAIDOC Week grants. Through the valuable support of our sponsors the committee continues to resource this invaluable event and ensure ticket prices remain affordable for our Aboriginal community members and free tickets are provided to our local Aboriginal Elders.
