The Paddington Society has a management committee of fourteen, elected each year by Society members. The Committee members are volunteers committed to preserving and improving Paddington’s unique environment. The Committee is recognised by Councillors, Council technical staff, and even Members of Parliament as one of Australia’s most skilled and effective community activist organisations.

We extend an invitation to residents, including professionals, to join us and share your insights. Your expertise can play a vital role in important discussions and help to evaluate the impacts of change. Everyone is welcome, while individuals with expertise in architecture, engineering, planning and design are encouraged to become involved and actively contribute to shaping the future of this exceptional environment. Your involvement is greatly welcomed as we continue our mission to protect and enhance our community environment while considering impacts of future redevelopment.

The Committee meets monthly, so if you’re interested in becoming involved in any way and using your skills to make a difference, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We look forward to working together to ensure a vibrant future for Paddington.
