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.
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.
For almost half a century, ACF has been a strong voice for the environment promoting solutions through research, consultation, education and partnerships. As a national, community-based environmental organisation, ACF has worked with the community, business and government to protect, restore and sustain the environment.
