PACIFIC SCIENCE COUNCIL

The Pacific Science Council is composed of one or more representatives from each national member to PSA (known as an Adhering Organization). The Council is the governing body of PSA, and meets at Pacific Science Congresses and Inter-Congresses to vote on Executive Board decisions, and to elect the Executive Board members that are responsible for running PSA between Council meetings.

Council meetings are held every two years, at Pacific Science Congresses and Inter-Congresses. The most recent meeting was held in July 2013 at the 12th Pacific Science Inter-Congress in Suva, Fiji. The Council representatives were:
