    'This year has seen many changes at the Institute—a new name (which, despite several months of practice now, we still difficulty in saying in a single breath), a new Council and a new Act. Four of the five ministerial appointees are now named. The fifth, a Torres Strait Islander, is yet to be announced by the Minister. Members are Mr Isaac Brown, Mr Michael Dodson, Ms Pearl Duncan and Mr Michael Williams. They join the elected members, Mr Ken Colbung, Ms Marcia Langton, Dr Nic Peterson and Professor Robert Tonkinson. The Minister has appointed Mr Colbung as Chairperson and Ms Langton as Deputy Chairperson of the Council.'  (Editorial Introduction)
