The NNTC hosts a number of regular workshops and information sessions for Traditional Owners and other stakeholders working within the native title sector. We also co-organise larger events and national conferences to discuss and collaborate on ideas and issues impacting Traditional Owners.
For more information about our events and workshops see below or get in touch with us: firstname.lastname@example.org
Native Title Operations and Management Training (NTOMT) is a free, one-of-its-kind five-day workshop to support Traditional Owners in gaining the skills they need to leverage their PBCs as a business. Organised by the NNTC is partnership with RMIT, AIATSIS and Melbourne Business School, the training is open to all PBC members, directors and staff, and any non-PBC Traditional Owner Corporations.
The NNTC covers the cost of the training, along with morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea each day. Participants just need to fund their own travel and accommodation.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, NTOMT workshops are on hold until further notice. For more info, see here.
PBC regional forums
The NNTC has delivered a number of Regional Forums for native title groups around the country. The first round of the forums was a valuable opportunity for PBCs to hear from government about the support and resources available to PBCs and native title organisations. Presentations and discussion have centred on the work of the National Indigenous Australians Agency, the Office of the Registrar of Indigenous Corporations, the Indigenous Land and Sea Corporation and Indigenous Business Australia.
The NNTC will be undertaking a second round of forums, with the focus being on opportunities for native title groups to collaborate across regions and develop their own frameworks for engagement with government. The forums provide a wonderful opportunity for PBCs to network with colleagues and discuss areas of concern with government representatives. The NNTC and native title representative bodies and service providers will send out notices about these workshops when they can be safely resumed in the future.
The NNTC is providing one-day native title compensation information workshops for native title groups around the country in collaboration with native title representative bodies and service providers.
In 2019 we delivered one workshop in Western Australia in collaboration with the Kimberley Land Council, and two workshops in Queensland in collaboration with Queensland South Native Title Services and the North Queensland Land Council.
The NNTC is continuing to develop the content of these workshops and hopes to provide native title groups in all regions around the country with an opportunity to participate in the workshops in the months ahead. The NNTC and native title representative bodies and service providers will send out notices about these workshops when they can be safely resumed in the future.
Indigenous Cultural Heritage Conference 2020

National Treaties Summit 2021
The National Treaties Summit has been postponed to early 2021 due to the COVID-19 health crisis.
The NNTC, Australians for Native Title and Reconciliation (ANTaR) and Melbourne Law School are hosting the three-day Summit as a landmark gathering of hundreds of First Nations leaders, community members, academics, politicians, international speakers and supporters to engage in a dialogue of Treaty and agreement-making.
Held at University of Melbourne, the Summit will be a chance to share and compare experiences from different jurisdictions, to explore international and historical context and to contribute to the momentum of Treaty happening across the continent.
The Summit will involve keynote speeches, panel discussions and hopefully culminate in a communique or agreed principles to inform future agreement-making processes.
