Dear Office of the Aboriginal Land Rights Act 1983 - NSW,
I notice you have not responded online to this FOI request by 15 March 2016. The need to view the Cummeragunja LALC membership is urgent as the estimated 80 adults residing in the CLALC area are either not members, had their membership rejected or meeting notices are placed in such obscure newspapers such as Shepparton News Victoria that members are rendered inactive for non attendance at meetings. This situation is serious as ALRA Sections 87 and 91 renders CLALC potentially in breach, namely if it "has less than 3% of potential members who reside in its area". As a statutory authority membership lists should be a public document.

Yours faithfully,

Monica Morgan
