Dear MAC Members,
As the end of another financial year approaches, I want to take a moment to reflect on just how much we have achieved this year as a commercial entity.
Our main mission, aside from protecting our land, heritage and culture, is to transform the lives of our members - who are the centre stone of our community.
MAC has progressed in leaps and bounds with this, becoming more self-sufficient than ever before, strategically diversifying our operations and economic footprint, which is enabling us to provide more value for our members now and into the future.
Diversifying has ensured we are not reliant on the majority of MAC’s revenue and support stemming from only a few keys areas – such as industry and government.
Instead we are now seeing the benefits of diversifying our operations, with financial stability and our ability to take on new opportunities as they arise – adding business, employment and revenue diversity, and expanding our horizons.
From oyster and sea cucumber pilot programs on sea country, to the engagement of Rangers and members for land monitoring, surveys and other duties by external companies, and even our new Business and Employment Development Unit, and Murujuga Commercial Limited (MCL) plus the future Murujuga Tourism Precinct – all the hard work is paying off and I hope the members and the MAC team are proud of everything we have achieved, and there is much more to come.
Together we have the ability to change our future, and with the great people we have at MAC, and with the support of the Circle of Elders, our members, boards and community, I know will achieve a better future for all.
Ngayintharri gumawarni ngurrangga.
