Election of Directors 2021

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 4 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.
