The REAPANZ Board

The REAPANZ Board is the national governance body with both elected and appointed members. The Board is responsible for developing and implementing the Strategic Direction of the national level of REAP activity. It is both responsive to the needs of our member REAPs and the changing needs and priorities of our funders and the environments we operate in. Work is carried out through our Chair and members, specific working groups, reference groups and our Director of Development and Operations.
