CAMSA is thus the national body representing state organisations of Men’s Sheds in Australia.
CAMSA is governed by a detailed constitution that protects the role of the state associations as owners of CAMSA.
CAMSA is run by a Board which represents the State Association members and a minority of “external” directors appointed for their individual expertise.
