YAC Board of Directors
Thomas Jacobs (Chair)
Royalty money from mining companies like Rio Tinto that are negotiated by YAC on behalf of the Yindjibarndi people is managed by a separate, independent organisation called the Yindjibarndi Community & Commercial Trust.
The board of directors is made up of trusted members of our community with assistance from experts in governance and financial management.
Tom Stephens, an active advocate for Aboriginal rights and justice in our region since the late 1970’s, was a member of the WA Parliament from 1982 until 2013; he brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the board of the Yindjibarndi Community and Commercial Trust.
John Hender, National Manager for Native Title Trusts with Perpetual Ltd, brings 25 years of financial experience to the board of our trust; he specialises in wealth building and with his help Yindjibarndi Trust will grow to benefit current and future generations of Yindjibarndi people.
