SLSA Board and committees

As one of the largest volunteer organisations in Australia, we are dependent on the contribution of our volunteer members from everything from patrolling beaches, to providing overall strategic direction for the organisation. Board and committee members freely give up their time for the benefit of surf lifesaving and the Australian community in general.

SLSA Board
The peak policy and decision body for Surf Life Saving in Australia, made up of the President of SLSA, the seven Presidents of each State and the Northern Territory and the Directors of the organisation’s three operational areas - Lifesaving, Surf Sports and Development, four Independent Directors and the Chief Executive Offier (CEO) of SLSA. The Boards delegates the management of SLSA to the CEO who seeks support and advice from the Executive Management Group (EMG).
