The staff (coordination unit) helps implement joint projects with protected areas.

It also organizes conferences, symposiums, workshops, exhibitions and meetings along with publishing documents and translations in collaboration with partner organizations.

Furthermore, the staff organizes a meeting between the ALPARC Council and General Assembly once a year in conjunction with a protected area.

Since its founding in 1995, the ALPARC staff has been operating outside of Chambery, France. The team was originally attached to Les Ecrins National Park and, in 2006, to the Permanent Secretariat of the Alpine Convention under the title “Task Force Protected Areas”. Since 2013, the staff is employed by ALPARC.
