This workshop runs for one day, from 9.00 am to 4.30 pm.

ORIC covers costs of providing the trainer, workshop materials, hiring the training venue and catering (morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea).
Some participants may be eligible (directors of small corporations) to apply for assistance with travel costs to attend. ORIC does not pay sitting fees and cannot provide child care.
Applications are welcome from all directors and members of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander corporations registered under the CATSI Act. Applications from corporation employees must be supported (an email is fine) by the CEO and a director of the corporation.
When we look at applications, we prioritiste directors of corporations (so make sure your corporation's records are up to date in the public register) and people in the local area.
Participants to be committed to the training, have a sense of fun and be willing to work with and learn from others.
We also expect participants to show respect for themselves, other participants and the trainer.
