Management Structure

The Management of Waltja is a partnership between the Board of directors including the Executive Directors and the Manager with the support of all other Waltja personnel.

Each year Waltja holds its Annual General Meeting, at which a Board of Directors maximum of 12 people are elected from its membership. Members also elect office bearers. These office bearers make up the Executive Directors.

All Board of Directors members must be appointed from remote communities.

The Board of Directors meets at least 3 times a year. They are responsible for setting the overall goals and objectives of Waltja and making decisions about policies and priorities.

The Executive Directors meet 4 times a year. They are responsible for setting direction and making decisions about projects and programs. They work more closely with the full range of Waltja’s services and activities with agencies and remote communities.

Sub and Steering committees are formed by members to address specific issues as the need arises.

Sub – committees can include members from outside Waltja’s Board of Management. They provide specialist information to the Members.

The Directors employs Aboriginal workers and Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal support workers to run a range of programs, forums, workshops, training and cultural activities.
