Our governance structure is sector-based, with representation across nine sectors:
- Indigenous Zone One,

- Indigenous Zone Three,
- Indigenous Zone Four;
- Primary Industries;
- Local Government;
- Community; and
- Tourism, Small Business, Mining and other Industries.
As well as opportunities to participate in Cape York NRM’s governance processes, members receive a Welcome Pack, our monthly eNewsletter, subscription to our Cape York NRM Newsroom, and a hard copy or electronic edition of our quarterly magazine, Cape York Healthy Country Newsletter.
Membership is completely free, and open to anyone with an interest in Cape York NRM and what we do on the Cape. Members are able to nominate as a general or supporting member. Supporting members are not eligible to vote in Director elections or at the Annual General Meeting.
