The Northern Territory Aboriginal Cricket Advisory Committee
Australian cricket is seeking expressions of interest from community members to join State and Territory Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Cricket Advisory Committees.
Each advisory committee has the responsibility and scope to offer advice to the board and management of their respective cricket associations on matters relating to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander involvement in cricket. Click here for further information.
Strong Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander governance and community representation is critical to Australian cricket realising its vision to be a sport of choice for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
