Members Up to 3 Voting Appointed by the Board in consultation with the State Council. Selected for skills and expertise
The Elected President 1 Voting Ex-officio
Council Member 1 Voting Appointed by the State Council at their first meeting
Past President 1 Voting Ex-officio, or if the immediate past President is unable then they can nominate a previous student Board member

*Ex-officio means that this Board Member is not elected to the position on the Board; rather, they are automatically a Member because the role they have has been identified as essential.

Student Board members hold office until 30 November each year.

The State Council sits under the Board and has sub-committees under it. For more information about Student Structures, please refer to the Representation section.
