ACF Council

Representing ACF members and elected by the members, the council is ACF’s core representative body. It comprises 21 councillors, each of which is elected by electorate for a three-year term. Council has four main functions: it is responsible for the strategic direction of ACF; it appoints our board; develops ACF policy; and engages with our members.
