Danila Dilba is a community-controlled organisation, which means we have a Board elected by members from the Biluru (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander) community in the Yilli Rreung (greater Darwin) re- gion.

Please visit our website or phone us if you are an Aborig- inal or Torres Strait Islander person living in the Yilli Rreung region and would like a membership form.

The Board and staff of Danila Dilba wish all our members, clients and sup- porters season’s greetings.

Please note we will be closed 25—27th December, 2013 and 1st January 2014.

Danila Dilba has a new Board of Directors, elected at the 2013 members’ Annual General Meeting in late November.

The new Directors are Paddy Stephensen (Chair), Carol Stanislaus (Minute Secretary), Audrey Tilmouth (Larrakia Repre- sentative), Kathleen Mills, Braiden Abala and Sarina Jan.

Current Directors Erin Lew Fatt, Boyd Scully, Leslie Calma and Gloria Corliss are continuing with their terms.

Ms Lew Fatt was elected Deputy Chair, following the resigna- tion of former Deputy Chair Shaun Tatipata.

Mr Tatipata wished the new Board all the best at the AGM and said that the last year was a difficult time for the Board, and Danila Dilba as a whole, “with the loss of our much-loved Chair- person, Cherrie McLennan”.

However, he said that “the foundations are now in place to build an even stronger service focused on improving the health of our people”.

New Chair Paddy Stephensen said he had “very big shoes to fill” and hoped to continue to support the work he’d seen Danila Dilba do “providing excellent services to local people”.

“I look forward to meeting with and shaking hands with eve- rybody on staff during the year.”

“Many people over many years have put in a tremendous amount of work as members and I acknowledge them and thank them for that work.”

“It’s placed us in excellent position to take the service for- ward,” he said.
