The Australian Conservation Foundation is governed by a board. It is a skills-based body, which consists of president, the vice-presidents, four councillors and up to four co-opted members.
The Council is a democratic body, representative of the Members, which appoints and oversights the Board and advises the Board on matters of environmental or organisational significance. It comprises 21 councillors, elected by the Members, across Australian states and territories, and up to four councillors co-opted for their skills. Councillors are elected to a three-year term.
For more than half a century, ACF has protected nature, advocating for all living things to live in harmony on the planet. At the heart of Australia’s environment movement, ACF works with the community, business and government to protect, restore and sustain the nature we all love.
