The Royal Society of New Zealand has established Panels and Committees to enable Council and Management to respond to, at times, rapidly changing concerns or emerging issues.

Advisory Panels have been established for, and chaired by each of the three disciplinary-based Vice-Presidents i.e. Vice-President (Biological and Life Sciences); Vice-President (Physical Sciences, Mathematics, Engineering and Technology); and Vice-President (Social Sciences and Humanities). These Panels comprise the Presidents (or their nominees) of a cross-section of Constituent Organisations that fall within each of the Vice President’s respective portfolios.

Expert Panels have been, and will be, set up for a specific purpose and timeframe to respond to, and initiate contributions by, the Royal Society of New Zealand to critical public issues. Expert Panels are formed for these specific tasks through the relevant Vice-President, Advisory Panel and Chief Executive and will draw on the appropriate expertise of Fellows and non-Fellows.

The Academy Executive Committee and ANZCCART are special Committees of the Royal Society of New Zealand.
