Birding NSW is an incorporated and not-for-profit organisation, registered as a recreational Club. All aspects of its management are carried out by various groups of volunteers. There are the Committee members who are elected by members present at the annual AGM.
All members of the Club are invited to nominate to join the Committee of Birding NSW at the AGM, which will be held on 7th November, 2023. If the form is posted to the Club’s postal address, please allow 7 days for delivery. The nomination form can be downloaded here: BNSW committee nomination form.
Several ancillary roles with quite specific tasks necessary for running the Club, but not requiring committee commitment, are filled by another group of volunteers. A third group of Central Coast members manage all the activities for that branch. Field outings leaders make up an essential fourth group without which our birding activities would be severely restricted. There would be no Club without the generous donation of time, energy, experience and good will from all these people. See BNSW volunteers

Current Life Members are Peter Roberts, Allan Richards, Alan Morris, Tom Karplus, Elisabeth Karplus. Past Life Members are Marie Dibley, Ern Hoskin, Jim Francis, Norma Maxwell, Barrie Ayres
