The Aboriginal Cultural Material Committee (ACMC) advises the Minister for Indigenous Affairs on matters relating to Aboriginal heritage. The Committee consists of Aboriginal men and women from different parts of Western Australia to ensure culturally appropriate decisions are made about sensitive material or sites.
- Local Clubs:Special Interest
Under the Aboriginal Heritage Act 1972 the ACMC is established as an advisory body.
The Committee evaluates the importance of Aboriginal sites on behalf of the community and recommends recordings and preserving the traditional Aboriginal lore related to sites (if appropriate).
The role of the Committee in considering an application for land development consists of:
1. Determining whether a site exists under section 5 of the AHA.
2. If it is determined that a site exists, then the significance of the site is evaluated under section 39(2).
3. Recommending to the Minister whether to grant or decline consent to the applicant to use the land, and whether conditions should apply to any consent granted.
The ACMC meets every first Wednesday of the month except in January.
Prior to each meeting the Committee advertises all applications it has received on the DIA website and in the West Australian to provide the information to the public. Applications for land development (s18 notices) have to be submitted before the advertised closing date. Applications submitted after the closing date will not be considered for the upcoming ACMC meeting. They will be considered for assessment for the meeting after.
All applications that are submitted to the ACMC must meet certain requirements so the ACMC can make an informed decision under the Aboriginal Heritage Act 1972 (please note that the number of copies of documents (both hard copy and electronic format) required to be submitted has recently changed):
The section 18 application form must be completed & signed by the owner of the land and/or applicant. An applicant who is not the owner of the land must include a letter of authorisation signed by the land owner to undertake the purpose described in the application.
A cover letter addressing the application and supporting documentation.
A list of attachments/inclusions, e.g. Certificates of Title, photographs, maps.
Final coloured versions of Aboriginal heritage survey reports. Draft reports will not be accepted.
DIA Aboriginal site recording forms must be submitted for all newly recorded sites and all previously registered sites that have new information recorded as part of the s18 application process. All photographs, diagrams and maps must be in colour. Site recording forms are considered as part of the application.
Five copies of all documents are required, collated to make five individual ‘packages’ with all attachments and inclusions (but not in a bound single volume). All maps / diagrams / photographs must be in colour for each copy.
Two digital copies of the application package, inclusive of all attachments, maps, spatial data (shapefile format preferred), on CD or other digital media.
After evaluating the s18 Notice, the ACMC makes recommendations to the Minister for Indigenous Affairs regarding the Heritage values of affected areas. The Minister makes the final decision on whether consent for a s18 application will be granted and under what, if any, conditions.

Our vision: "The flourishing of the Men’s Health and Wellbeing Sector in Western Australia"
- Type:DGR 1 Status
- Charity:Drugs & Alcohol,Employment & Training,Information & Referral,Mental Health
M.A.N. the peak body for service providers, organisations and individuals concerned with men’s health, well-being and other issues affecting males of all ages in Western Australia. It is a not-for-profit non-government organisation that receives financial support from the Department of Health.
The primary role that M.A.N. plays is resourcing the sector through supporting service providers, organisations and professionals from various disciplines, who work with males of all ages. In addition, M.A.N. provides information to individuals about appropriate services and professionals, plus provides general community education and raises awareness of the issues affecting males of all ages.
The aim of M.A.N. is to raise awareness of issues impacting on males of all ages and to advocate on their behalf in order to promote their health and well-being in a holistic sense covering physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual components. This is based on the World Health Organisation's 1986 definition of health and encompasses all aspects of a person's life.
The primary role that M.A.N. plays is resourcing the sector through supporting service providers, organisations and professionals from various disciplines, who work with males of all ages. In addition M.A.N. refers individuals to the most appropriate services, plus provides general community education and raises awareness of the issues affecting males of all ages.
In 2002, M.A.N. received funding from the Department of Health to investigate the options for establishing and maintaining a viable network for community based men's groups in Western Australia. The rationale for this funding may be found in the government's election commitments contained in the Men's Health Direction Statement.

The WACA is a sports stadium in Perth, Western Australia. WACA are the initials of its owners and operators, the Western Australian Cricket Association.
The WACA ground has been the "home" of cricket in Western Australia since the early 1890s. The first Test match was played at the ground in 1970. The WACA is the home ground of Western Australia's first-class cricket team, the Western Warriors and the local KFC Twenty20 Big Bash franchise, the Perth Scorchers. The women's cricket team known as the Western Fury plays in the Women's National Cricket League.
The pitch at the WACA was regarded as one of the quickest and bounciest in the world. These characteristics, in combination with the afternoon sea-breezes which regularly pass the ground (the Fremantle Doctor), have historically made the ground an attractive place for pace and swing bowlers. The ground has seen some very fast scoring – as at January 2012, four of the seven fastest Test centuries had been scored at the WACA.
Throughout its history, the ground has also been used for a range of other sports, including athletics carnivals, Australian rules football, baseball, soccer, rugby league, rugby union, international rules football. However, recent years have seen most of these activities relocated to other venues. It has also been used for major rock concerts.
