Election of Council Members and Officer bearers is by a simple majority vote in a secret postal ballot of the individual and institutional members of the Society. Candidates for the Council must be nominated by at least two members of the Society. Nominations must reach the Secretary not less than 21 days before the Annual General Meeting. The Council usually meets four times a year.
