Committees & Positions Held

Within the Australian Ninjukai Association (ANKA), a non-profit society, there are many committees and positions responsible for overseeing and planning various aspects of the art and its activities. The workload is by no means small - with several thousand members, past and present, and many ongoing and periodic tasks the organisation does. These may be permanent roles within Ninjukai Taijutsu or temporary positions relevant to a certain event or project. Most committees are headed by a chairperson who may act as the figurehead and senior decision maker within the committee.
