Five members of the Business Committee are elected every year. Elections are held each February and are overseen by a representative of the Electoral Reform Society. At present, elections are by online voting with the option of a postal ballot on request. Online voting is being recommended with the expectation of encouraging members of the General Council to participate in the Elections.
Notice of forthcoming Elections, and the offices for which elections will be held in the following February, are published in advance in the winter issue of the Billet along with candidate statements. This information will also be available on the General Council website with notices being sent out by email.
