Board & Council

Our network has an open structure to maximise participation and encourage collective decision-making.  We do not have formal membership and networkers are a fluid group of individuals and organisations who maintain regular two-way contact with the network.

We have two decision-making bodies: a Board and a Council.  The Board is our formal decision-making body, and the Council acts as a group of expert advisors on policy matters.
