Imperative perspective of people living in community
The AIG Board of Directors have a very important role to play in educating the CEO about what needs to be done to meet the needs of Aboriginal people living in community.
Our board represents the seven northern regions of the NT and direction and insights from each board member are valuable in guiding AIG to support projects that respond to needs at community level.

“As the Chair of the Board, I am happy with the performance of AIG this financial year and believe the direction going forward will be positive. In my opinion, AIG is operating how to should be to excel in the future”.
Deputy Chair of the Board of Directors
“We are looking beyond individuals and keep focussed on community groups. The work of AIG must be about the community”. This is why we are doing things like building stores, investing in housing and building laundries. These projects are for the community and they provide employment”.
Chair of the Financial Advisory Committee
Katherine Region – Barunga
“For me there are three key issues for AIG; making sure AIG dividends create better social and economic outcomes, investing in projects that meet the needs of the communities and lastly communicating better about what AIG does and how it can help Aboriginal people”.
