The governance of Pedal Power ACT is vested in a Council and Executive (office bearers), elected at each Annual General Meeting. The Pedal Power Corporate Governance Statement is available to members by contacting the Pedal Power office. The members of Pedal Power ACT are always welcome at Council meetings. General members may bring items for discussion (with due notice to the Secretary) and may participate in discussion of the item and any other business, but may not vote.

If interested in joining Council, nominate for election at the next Annual General Meeting.
