Authority to Act for Another (AAA)


Sometimes Members are unable to manage their own affairs and have persons appointed to make decisions for them, such as having a guardian or an administrator.

This AAA form must be completed in order to notify Gumala Aboriginal Corporation (GAC), that a registered Member is unable to manage their own affairs and has an authorised representative who is able to contact GAC and make decisions on their behalf.

This form will need to be accompanied by relevant supporting documentation, which sufficiently proves the extent of the Member’s inability to act for themselves.

This supporting documentation may consist of:

  • Power of attorney
  • Order of guardianship
  • Medical reports
  • Court orders
  • Others (as determined on a case-by-case basis).

Completed forms and supporting documentation should be emailed to

If you have any questions, please contact the GAC office on 1800 486 252 and ask to speak to anyone in the Memberships Team who will be able to assist you.
