Forum for Independent Directors and Officers of Indigenous Organisations (FIDIO)
The objectives of FIDIO are to:
• establish a forum to encourage and support professional independent directors and chief executive officers who are or wish to become engaged in corporate governance of indigenous organisations and trusts in Australia;
• provide a focal point for indigenous organisations and trusts to identify quality directors and CEOs;
• leverage the learning, information, expertise and tools available to independent directors to support their engagement with indigenous organisations whilst reducing the costs; and
• provide self regulating peer based quality assurance, eventually under the auspices of an independent professional body.
For further information, please see our Brochure in the 'About FIDIO' folder under the Files tab.

Make your mark in the arts and literary world while soaking up the magnificent cultures and beauty of Broome and Australia’s great Kimberley Region.
Whether your background is in the not-for-profit sector, arts, publishing or Indigenous development sector, your demonstrated skill in growing the people and services under your leadership will be key.
An enthusiastic FIDIO crowd gathered on Wednesday evening for a great introduction to the native title claims process and agreement making. Debbie Fletcher, A/g Deputy Registrar (Operations West) of the National Native Title Tribunal took participants through the claims process from the Registration Test right through to a determination by the Federal Court.
Debbie's colleague Amber Blake, Senior Coordinator of Future Act Arbitration, then explained the various activities that trigger the Future Act process and the right to negotiate. Both Debbie and Amber did a great job explaining what are often complex, technical processes.
