The missions of ALPARC are defined by the Council which is composed of managers of the alpine protected areas, representing the diversity and number of protected areas by alpine country.

It establishes the main directions which define the international work according to the priorities and requests of the protected areas.

ALPARC has a president and two vice-presidents, who lead the Council. They represent ALPARC in official matters.

The Permanent Committee of the Alpine Convention is informed about the ALPARC working programme.
