Election of Directors 2024

In this section

Our Board of Directors is appointed by our members to represent them in the operation of our Society. 

Each director is appointed for a period of up to four years and each year those periods come to an end for a number of our directors. Our members then have the option to either reappoint an existing director, if they apply for re-election, or to appoint a new director.
