MG Corporation: How their governance works
Helen Gerrard, MG Corporation Board Director (2012), explains how MG Corporation is governed. She talks about how it’s changed over time and how it represents different groups through the Dawang Council.
“Within our Miriuwung Gajerrong Corporation structure we’ve got the Garralyel who sit on top who are overseeing the whole operation, and responsible for land, law and culture, language, maintenance and all those areas. Then we have got the Dawang Council who meet quarterly, and they oversee the corporation and what we’re working towards; our strategic plan and making sure we’re delivering on that and then we have got the board which consists of five MG directors, and two independents and we meet every month and we are the main engine room of the corporation- we are the leaders.”
