Community Partners

Board Members

TLC is governed by a five-member Board of eminent Indigenous language specialists, both native speakers and linguists. The Board of Directors is responsible for the overall direction and decision-making of the organisation. Directors are elected for two-year terms from candidates nominated from within the Board. All of our board members volunteer their time to prevent further language loss.
