North Coast Aboriginal Corporation for Community Health (NCACCH) – Rule Book (Constitution)
Under the Corporations (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander) Act 2006 (CATSI Act), corporations have internal governance rules. That is, rules that guide how each corporation should be run based on principles of good governance. The CATSI Act allows Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to create rules that best suit their specific needs. These rules form the corporation’s rule book.
