Rumbalara's executive and Board of Directors are often called upon to speak on behalf of the co-operative and its members.

As a community, our minds and actions must stay focused on the end goal - to achieve an optimal quality of life and standard of living for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the Goulburn Valley region.
