Council

Council of the Alliance consists of one delegate from each Member Body, the Chair of Friends, and up to three co-opted individuals.

Council provides Member Bodies with the opportunity to engage on an equal footing in selecting the issues on which the Alliance’s information and policy work focuses, in developing the organisation’s views, in formulating the strategic plan and in overseeing the Alliance’s projects.
