Our Board

Friends of The Earth Australia ia a Federation of member group and as such representatives of the members of the Federation take it in turns to nominate and serve in office bearing roles for the Federation, such as the organisational board known as the Committee of Management (CoM). While the day to day operations of the organisation are managed on behalf of the Federation by the Secretariat, the Committee of Management (known as the CoM) holds organisational, financial and governance oversight of the organistion.  

The CoM is a voluntary elected office bearing role and the CoM must include representatives of at least 3 different Federation member groups. The CoM meets monthly and is bound by FoE Australia’s values, philosophy and anti-hierarchical consensus based decision making model, in line with our constitutional rules, internal policies and processes.
