The Officers are the President, Vice President and Deputy Vice President. As a matter of convention the Deputy Vice President, Vice President, and President are recommended by the Management Committee to the Annual General Meeting by reason of longevity of service on the Council. However, it is possible for a Council member to indicate they do not wish to take up a position for which they are due to be nominated, without resigning from the Council, or for another member of the Council, or any member of NSLS to indicate they wish to be considered for a post.

Any member may be nominated for an Officer post by two members by notice in writing to the Secretary at least 3 clear days before the AGM.
