Jabalbina's Board of Directors

Jabalbina is governed by a Board of six Directors representing the three main clan groups.

A male and a female Director are appointed from each of the three primary dialect groups Jalunji, Nyungkal or Yalanji. The Directors meet regularly (at least quarterly) for one or two days depending on the volume and priority of matters requiring their consideration. Given the limited staffing resources available, Directors provide much needed input into the operational as well as the strategic operations of the corporation.

Jabalbina also consist of a Chairperson and a Deputy Chairperson which are elected by the Directors. Our Chairperson is Desmond Tayley and Deputy Chairperson is Emma Burchill.
