An invitation to nominate to the Society’s Council is open for a set period each year. 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).
Nominations are called for in about August each year, with the Society. Elections are then 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.
