The State Council sets NPA’s strategic direction and policy, co-ordinates conservation responses, and helps strengthen our network of local branches and groups. It comprises activist members from diverse parts of the State, including:
- delegates elected by branches
- conveners of State Council committees
- members of the Executive
- additional appointed members.
The State Council is a great way to meet and network with fellow conservationists, whilst developing your skills in the environment sector.
Meetings are held 3 times per year on Saturdays at various locations across NSW. These are usually combined with a Sunday activity or inspection guided by local experts. Travel and accommodation expenses are reimbursed.
