The New South Wales Aboriginal Land Council (NSWALC) has established the Economic Development Advisory Committee (EDAC) under section 118 of the Aboriginal Land Rights Act 1983. The role of EDAC is to provide strategic advice and direction to the Council about how it can identify, develop and support economic development opportunities for the land rights network and NSWALC Enterprises.

Economic Development is a core focus of the NSWALC's Strategic Plan 2018-22. Goal 3 of NSWALC's Strategic Plan aims to build on the gains Aboriginal people have made from the Land Rights movement by creating further opportunities to grow the economic prosperity and independence of Aboriginal people and Local Aboriginal Land Councils (LALCs).

The Council is seeking Expressions of Interest from network members who have:
