Election of President, Treasurer & Members of Council

The President and Treasurer of the RHS are elected annually by the members of the Society at the Annual General Meeting (AGM). The other elected Members of Council usually serve for five years with at least three retiring each year. New members are elected at the AGM with candidates having been nominated in accordance with the nomination process.
The deadline for candidates seeking the support of Council in the 2019 elections is Friday 19 October 2018. The deadline for candidates wishing to proceed directly to the election is 1 March 2019.
