The Council is the highest decision making body of the Society. It is entirely made up of nine (9) elected members. It sets the strategy for the Society and at this point also implements some of those strategies. As the profession grows and becomes more financially sustainable, we envisage a separation between Council and executive duties.
The current Council is made up of the following members;
