AMSANT ANNUAL REPORT 2016-2017 54 In March 2017, the AGMP organised the Innovating to Succeed forum in Alice Springs, which attracted 80 delegates from Aboriginal organisations, NT and Commonwealth governments and the private sector. Case studies were presented that focussed on six innovative programs, designed and driven by Aboriginal groups. Delegates expanded and strengthened their networks, engaged with key decision makers and went home with a swag of valuable ideas and programs to promote governance and management issues in their own organisations. The AGMP also worked with the Aboriginal Housing NT Committee to develop a representative membership model that combines individual members with housing expertise and representatives from Aboriginal housing organisations. The AGMP provided governance and financial advice at workshops and assisted with the preparation of briefing papers for high-level government and industry stakeholders. Aboriginal Governance and Management Program (AGMP) During the year AGMP provided intensive and targeted support to four support sites (Aboriginal organisations) in Wadeye and Yuendumu. What follows are some of the other highlights of our work: At Palngun Wurnangat Aboriginal Corporation [PWAC] in Wadeye, the AGMP assisted with the transition to a new General Manager; we helped create a new Executive Chair position to boost local leadership; and we empowered the Board through workshops and strategic planning. The AGMP assisted the Thathangathay Foundation Incorporation to transfer its governance principles from the NTGs Association Act to the Commonwealth Governments Corporations ~ Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Act (CATSI), thus ensuring stronger governance and greater transparency. The Southern Tanami Kurdiji Indigenous Corporation [STKIC] received capability and capacity-building support from the AGMP, in readiness for the transfer of the mediation and community safety patrol programs from the Central Desert Regional Council to STKIC on 1 July 2018. The AGMP provided capacity-building support to the Yuendumu Womens Centre Aboriginal Corporation [YWC] by way of targeting practical advice and support to management for meetings, and by reviewing the organisations key services during a period of change.
