Our Governance

miriam and chair

The Miriam Rose Foundation first incorporated in 1988 as an Association under the NT Associations Act.  We functioned in this capacity until December 2018 when our Board and members voted to become an Aboriginal Corporation under the Corporations (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander) Act.  On January 7, 2020 we officially became The Miriam Rose Foundation Aboriginal Corportation.  As such our 2019 AGM elected a majority indigenous Board and we are now very much governed by members of the Nauiyu Community who we serve.

Our current Chair is Julie Calvert who has a strong background in community organisations and was a Territorian for many years.  Julie is a determined advocate for improved education and opportunities for indigenous youth.  She has hosted numerous students in her own home over the years to ensure that they have a safe and supportive home whilst they study off country.  Julie has worked closely with Miriam since the foundation started and is determined that the foundation lives its' strategy and is a trusted charity.
