Current Election

Elections conducted by the Australian Electoral Commission 

  • Branch Council Representatives (Insufficient Nominations Election) – E2022/87
  • Federal Conference Delegate Representing the General Division
  • Branch Secretary and Deputy Secretaries Election – E2021/75 (Important notice)

    The Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) ordinarily conducts the collegiate election for Branch Secretary and four (4) Deputy Secretaries at a Branch Council meeting. However, due to advice that they are not in a position to recommence in person ballots, the Federation Executive determined to make an application for an exemption to have the election conducted in person by the Branch Returning Officer, Mr Neale Dawson. This exemption application was successful.
