About National Council

The National Council provides the vital representative platform for leadership of the Australian Museums and Galleries Association, and its members are the recognisable interface with the sector, on behalf of the hugely dispersed footprint of AMaGA membership around the country.

Council members bring expertise and experience, source opinion, listen to needs, develop and implement policy, and, in particular, garner the intellectual and human resources that help the association continue to put together informed submissions to public inquiries affecting the sector, and continuing to provide effective advocacy to government on issues and conditions vitally affecting our museums and the communities they serve.

Council needs representation from across the geographic spread of the country and covering the intellectual and practical diversity of disciplines and functions that make up the museums and galleries sector, as reflected in AMaGA’s membership.

The Council consists of the positions of President, Vice-president, Secretary and Treasurer and 6 ordinary members. The current Presidents of the various State/Territory Branches, or their designated representative, are automatically members of Council.
