Working Groups

In order to meet the objectives of the Ecological Society of Australia (ESA) Strategic Plan, and maximise the success of the Society in meeting its aims, a series of Working Groups have been established to help get things done!

Each group has a specific focus or function such as a new initiative or strategy, event or award, or a standing administrative role, and consists of a small number of ESA Board members, staff and/or ordinary ESA members, who want to get involved with their Society in an area of interest, and make things happen.

Each group works under terms of reference developed by the Group and approved by the ESA Board. Some Working Groups are permanently operating e.g. Finance, Conference, Media etc, while others may only come together for a short time to get a new initiative, program or event off the ground. More information on current Groups and structure can be found below.

Join in

All Society members are invited to participate in a Working Group where they feel they have a strong interest or have some ideas or skills to contribute. We also welcome suggestions on potential Working Groups that members feel may be of value to the Society’s aims.

You can join a Working Group by sending an email to the Chair, listed via the links below.

If you’re already a member and want to join the Discussion Forum, please log in at the bottom (or right) of this page.
