There are vacancies for the Business Committee every year and elections are held each February. 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. A much simpler voting process will be introduced this year, especially for online voting and further details of this will be published on this website and in the winter issue of Billet.

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.
