Join a Committee or Council

The Society’s committee year runs from 1 May to 30 April. Each year the Society invites its members to submit expressions of interest (using an EOI Form) in committee membership for the coming year. A selection panel convenes in late April each year. See the Committee Charter. The current EOI period has closed.

An invitation to nominate to the Society’s Council is open for a set period each year. Nominations are called for in August of each year. The Notice and Nomination Forms are available below. The nomination period and deadlines are listed in the Notices.

To nominate, the applicant must be either a practising certificate holder, or an associate who is deemed to hold a practising certificate under the Legal Profession Act (2007).

Elections are held if required, with counting taking place at the three regional committee AGMs held in early October of that year. A councillor’s term commences in mid-late October.
