With our statewide network of branches, members, volunteers and supporters, we are well positioned to respond to new challenges and embrace opportunities.

NPA is an incorporated body made up of a network of branches and electorates. The organisation is governed by a State Council, consisting of branch and electorate delegates, and an executive that oversees operational aspects and staff.

The organisation operates under a detailed Strategic Plan, an Annual Budget and a Governance Manual. Our Strategic Plan continues to effectively guide our work, and staff report against its objectives throughout the year.
