The Executive Committee consists of six Representatives from the Provincial Groups and nine elected members.
The members of the Society normally elect three Executive Committee members each year at the Annual General Meeting. In normal circumstances each elected member will serve for three years and must then stand for re-election or stand down.
Each elected member becomes a Trustee of the Society and holds a voting position on the Society's Executive Committee.
In addition, any member who has been awarded the Society's Gold Medal can attend and contribute to Executive Committee meetings but does not hold a voting position. Holders of the Society's highest award the 'Associate of Honour' may also attend and contribute to Executive Committee meetings with the power to vote.
Members may be co-opted to Committee at any time should the need arise.
