Mulga Mail recently ran a short piece outlining the role and responsibilities of YMAC’s Community Liaison Officers (CLOs).

CLOs are vital in the native title process, making sure that the community understands how native title works and how they can participate in their group’s decision making. In turn, they also make sure that YMAC staff and consultants understand about the community to avoid misunderstandings and ensure that culture is respected.

YMAC’s CLOs are:
Geraldton: Daniel Shiosaki, Carrum Mourambine and Les Hill
Karratha: Michael Gosper
South Hedland: Nyaparu Rose and Jerry Maher
South Hedland/Tom Price: Coralie Cooke and Victor Woodley
