General Council

Our General Council meets three times a year to develop policy and respond to advocacy issues. The Executive Committee meets four times a year.

Members of the History Council of NSW are encouraged to approach the office with items for consideration by the General Council. These items should be issues of concern or for information for the history sector. Agenda items are included at the discretion of the President.

Elections to the History Council of NSW General Council take place bi-ennially. Only members are eligible to nominate and vote in elections. The next election will occur in 2019.

For more information about nominations, please contact us.
