The Roe­bourne Com­mu­nity As­so­ci­a­tion will re­vert to monthly meet­ings af­ter host­ing get­to­geth­ers ev­ery week in Fe­bru­ary to kick off dis­cus­sions on projects.

Spokesman Michael Nikakis said the as­so­ci­a­tion had to get some “scores on the board” to build the res­i­dent’s be­lief in the power of the group.

“What we are go­ing to aim for is to never have meet­ings out of the com­mu­nity,” he said.

“I’m hop­ing our meet­ings will be more struc­tured in a tradi- tional Abo­rig­i­nal way rather than the Western way of hav­ing an agenda and some per­son lead­ing it.”

Mr Nikakis said the more com­mu­nity mem­bers they could get to take on re­spon­si­bil­i­ties and come to meet­ings, the more suc­cess­ful the as­so­ci­a­tion would be.
