The members, the executive and the chair
Aboriginal residents in each of the CLC's nine regions elect delegates to represent them at land council meetings and to inform them about the discussions and outcomes of these meetings.
The 90 council members elect the CLC's 11-member executive, a committee of the council with formally delegated powers. The executive meets between council meetings, generally seven or eight times a year. It is comprised of the chair, the deputy chair and one member from each of the CLC's nine regions.
The chair - Sammy Wilson
Chair of the Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park Board of Joint Management and the Mutitjulu Community Aboriginal Corporation. Owner/operator of Uluru Family Tours.

And I will keep talking up for my community."
The deputy chair - Barbara Shaw
