The Australasian Region is governed by a council comprising the President, Vice president or Past president, Treasurer and Secretary of the region as well as the regional newsletter correspondent and regional representatives to IBS. We also have one member on the new IBS Executive Board and three on Council as seen below.
Nominations for each vacant position are called for by the Secretary towards the end of the calendar year prior to the biennial regional conference. If more than one nomination is received for a particular position, then members are required to vote for a preferred candidate for the position. Otherwise, no formal election is necessary.
