SWALSC is holding six Community Information Forums about the progress of the South West Native Title Settlement since the Authorisation Meetings held in early 2015. The Forums will provide the Noongar community with the opportunity to ask questions about where we have been, and where we are going. The Forums are not Claim Group Meetings, so any Noongar person who lives nearby is welcome to attend. Light refreshments will be provided.

Northam Forum, 4 November 2017, 10:30am-12:30pm, Northam Town Hall.
