We are a social enterprise Company limited by guarantee in Australia, governed by 2 Executive Directors and this Constitution. A Board of Non-Executive Directors will guide the direction, strategic approaches and delivery of objectives. The SAC also supports our local special interest groups, not-for-profit eco-organisation and individuals with collaborative connections to deliver more over-reaching environmental and sustainable benefits to our local region of North East Victoria and Southern Riverina of NSW.
A major activity of The SAC is the engagement of the wider public in events that promote behavioural change to a more sustainable lifestyle. Meetings, workshops, forums, art exhibitions, demonstrations and events are tools to encourage and exemplify smarter choices for a better future.
We seek to work closely with environmental services, government, health & wellbeing organisations, international and national associations to improve and develop services and provide valuable options for environmental benefit in our community.
