The WDLAC board meet quarterly in Perth and on Martu country.  The make-up of the board is divided into representatives from different parts of Martu country. This means there are representative from Karlamyingurrara country, Ngayunanalku country, Pilakaja country, Piyijikarli country, Rirrakaja country and Walakaja country.  A quorum of our board requires at least one member from these sub-groups. All other major decisions that do not affect native title rights and interests require consensus of the board.
