In 2008 the six Australian State Networks signed a Memorandum of Understanding which in turn lead to the development of a Constitution for a national organisation, Polio Australia, and its incorporation later that year.
Two representatives from each Member Network are appointed to the Management Committee of Polio Australia. At least one of the Committee Members nominated by each Member Network must be a polio survivor, so that at least 50% of the Management Committee are polio survivors. It is the intention of the Member Networks that at least 75% of the Management Committee be polio survivors.
The six founding Member Networks of Polio Australia are:
Polio NSW Inc (previously known as Post-Polio Network (NSW) Inc)
Spinal Life Australia (operating services on behalf of Queensland polio survivors)
Post Polio Network - Tasmania Inc (no longer operating)
Additional state-based Member Network:
Post Polio Victoria Inc (advocacy focus)
