Proud Gumbaynggirr Man, Lachlan Skinner is currently the Operations Manager for the Coffs Harbour and District LALC.
Who ya Mob and Where ya from?
I’m a proud Gumbaynggirr Man born and raised in Coffs Harbour NSW. My Grandfather is Noel Skinner from Corindi Camp and Grandmother is the one and only Aunty Jenny Skinner (Don’t hold it against me haha).
Tell us abit about yourself?
I have lived in Coffs Harbour my whole life completing High School in 2013 at Coffs Harbour High School.
I landed in the Coffs Harbour and District LALC in 2014 and have moved around the organisation starting as a Property Manager Assistant and now the Operations Manager.
I have been actively involved in Community Events and Projects since I was 15 Years old.
Deadly Factor NAIDOC Talent Show was my first ever event! Now I chair the NAIDOC Planning Committee among many other things.
I enjoy spending time with Family and Friends, exercising (sometimes), socialising, working with people and supporting/pushing people to be and do better.
I have a passion for radio and believe strongly that we need more First Nation Media Platforms and believe Coffs Harbour needs their own!
What are you most excited about, whilst working at Coffs Harbour LALC?
I love waking up every day knowing I’m going to work for the deadliest and strongest community I know. (Sounds Cheesy) But I love my job. Nothing I love more than putting on Events, running programs and just being amongst Community.
