Inter Council Aboriginal Consultative Committee (ICACC)
The Inter Council Aboriginal Consultative Committee (ICACC) was established in 1997 by Aboriginal people and 8 committed local Councils. Today, ICACC is represented by the Aboriginal community and the City of Casey, City of Greater Dandenong, City of Frankston, City of Kingston, and the Shire of Bass Coast.
The aim of ICACC is to support Aboriginal Communities across the 6 council regions and to raise awareness of Local Government amongst those communities.
