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
- convenors 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.
