The identification and formulation of long term strategies such as: 0 the form, content and format of a draft constitution; 0 reviewing the desired procedure for the adoption of a Northern Territory constitution and other issues relating to eventual Statehood including a possible timetable; and 0 the re-establishment of public awareness programs to Northern Territory urban centres, Aboriginal and remote communities. 10
