The Council of the Australian Flora Foundation is the body which administers the Foundation. Councilors and the executive are nominated and elected by financial members of the Foundation at the Annual General Meeting, usually held in November each year. The current Council membership is as follows:
- President: Dr Peter Goodwin About Peter
- Secretary: Mr Ian Cox
- Treasurer: Dr E. Charles Morris About Charles
- Vice President: Professor Richard Williams About Richard
Carolyn Gillard About Carolyn
Associate Professor Jennifer Firn About Jennifer
The Council meets about three times a year to conduct the Foundation's business, including selection of research projects for funding and awarding of grants (after assessment by the Scientific Research Committee). The Council also oversees the investment of funds in the Research Fund. There are a variety of tasks which the Councillors undertake between meetings including fund raising activities, publication of Newsletters and publicity. Volunteers to assist with this work are always welcome.
