The ACSEP is governed by a Council of democratically-elected directors, led by the College President. The Council governs according to the ACSEP Constitution. Eight Committees/Boards directly report to the Council, providing advice and recommendations to Council within their respective areas of responsibility.
College Fellows elect the President and Vice-President. The elected Office Bearers appoint the Chair of Training, the Censor in Chief, the Honorary Secretary and the New Zealand Representative. Committee members are appointed in accordance with each committee’s terms of reference.
The ACSEP holds its Annual General Meeting once a year in conjunction with the Annual Scientific Conference.
All members of the College may seek to change policy or to initiate new policy through the College’s committees, or sub-specialty groups.
