Landcare Tasmania has a team of passionate volunteers that make up our Board (below), Members Council and other subcommittees, along with a small professional team of staff (below) located in Hobart and Ulverstone/Penguin. The Board is elected at the Annual General Meeting on the basis of the governance skills needed to run a modern not-for-profit organsiation. Our Members Council is a standing subcommittee, also elected at the AGM, to provide a representative forum for Landcare Tasmania members, to facilitate implementation of Landcare Tasmania projects and activities, and to provide advice to the Board on strategic direction.
