AFG has a robust mechanism for the development of policy with direct input from our members. The biennial Policy Forum is comprised of the AFG Board of Directors and delegates from our 23 branches. The Policy Forum has produced a range of policies that identify important areas for improving the resilience, viability and contribution of the private forestry sector.
AFG Policies are prepared to assist Government, decision makers and AFG branches and members in further developing policy that recognises AFG priorities.
AFG held its 4th Policy Forum in Sydney on the 21st and 22nd of October 2009. At the Forum, policy recommendations were debated and resolved. At the most recent Policy Forum, for the first time, delegates met in State Groups to consider priorities for their State which are available in the State Policy section of this site.
