National Council Election

The National Council consists of eight elected members, the Secretary and an appointed Honorary Treasurer. An additional elected member from each chapter is permitted. Council members are elected annually and are eligible for re-election. Office Bearers are elected at the Annual General Meeting. The President for the ensuing year is elected annually by the incoming Council from its own Members.

Nominations of Members for Council Members for the ensuing year are invited from members. Nominations are only accepted from EESA members (with prior consent from the candidate) and should include the member's chapter. Nominations are received by the Secretary before the Annual General Meeting, and the Secretary is the Returning Officer. Voting may be by show of hands or by ballot paper, as decided at the Annual General Meeting.
