National Committee for Astronomy

The National Committee for Astronomy (NCA) is one of the National Committees of the Australian Academy of Science (AAS).

The National Committee for Astronomy exists to foster astronomy in Australia, to liaise with international scientific bodies, and to advise the Council of the Australian Academy of Science on relevant matters. The NCA acts as a peak body for astronomy in Australia, with the aims of promoting the national value and benefits of the astronomical sciences, facilitating community-wide strategic planning initiatives, and managing relations between Australian astronomers and the International Astronomical Union.
