Co-Designing Benefits Management Structures (BMSs)  

 

Exploring Findings of a Three Year Research Project

              



THURSDAY 8 AUGUST 2019

4.30pm - 6pm

 

Hosted by FDIO at

LEVEL 17, 225 ST GEORGE'S TERRACE

PERTH WA



With an expansion in the number and size of resource and other projects affecting Indigenous land in Australia, coupled with ongoing recognition of Indigenous interests through Native Title and other related processes, the performance of Benefits Management Structures is increasingly significant.

 

 

Representing a UWA research team, Ian is pleased to launch their findings from a three year research project that explores the structure, operation and purposes of BMSs, examines key issues in implementation and outlines guidelines for best practice in design.



This event will support understanding of:

  • Key issues faced by Indigenous communities and other stakeholders in the design and operation of BMSs.

  • Design guidelines.

  • Structural and operational improvements and beneficial features of existing BMSs.

 

Join Dr Ian Murray, and a panel of industry experts, to gain knowledge and academic rigor on this important growth area.

 

Light refreshments will be served.


 

Panelists will include perspectives from Indigenous community and corporation representatives, resource proponents and trustees, for instance, including:



Adam Levin Partner, Jackson MacDonald

Glen Mesch State Trust Manager, Perpetual Trustees

Jason Masters Chairman, Kuruma Marthudunera Limited (KML)

Sara Slattery Chairperson, Robe River Kuruma Aboriginal Corporation (RNTBC)

Greg Ryan-Gadsden CEO, Tjiwarl Aboriginal Corporation  

Colin Johnson Community and Indigenous Affairs, BHP Billiton
