National Council

The National Council is the supreme governing body of the Pharmacy Guild of Australia. It lays down all Guild policies, decides major issues and has the power to amend the Constitution, subject to referendum where required.

The National President works closely with the National Secretariat, headed by the Executive Director, and is the main spokesperson for the Guild. While always a pharmacist proprietor (as with all National Councillors), the role of National President is effectively full-time.
