BIC also conducted a business plan review for the Dhiiyaan Cultural Centre and Keeping Place in Moree, with support from Arts North-West NSW. The Dhiiyaan facility is a vitally important, culturally significant and unique Indigenous resource containing books, photographs, artefacts, oral histories and stories. The review provided a focus for the immediate future of the Centre and its steering committee.

NATIONAL INDIGENOUS LEADERSHIP PROGRAM
BIC is an active panel member on the FaHCSIA National Indigenous Leadership Program. BIC facilitators Trevor Satour, Veronica Williams and James Baban have been engaged to conduct several intakes of the National Men's and Women's Leadership Progams, and a number of special interest and Remote Service Delivery Workshops in all parts of Australia.

In May 2010 BIC conducted a Regional Community Leadership Workshop on the NSW Central Coast. This was attended by 55 participants at a three day live-in event at the Kooindah Waters Mantra Resort. Many participants went on to complete the national program and the BIC mentor course. The ultimate aim of events like this is to create a pool of committed and trained community leaders and mentors to assist Indigenous youth through education into employment, and further, to build the foundation of a strong community.
