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.
