The committee is elected at the AGM, at which the existing committee stand-down, and a new committee (which may contain the existing members if they run for re-election) is elected.
The constitution allows up to 10 members on the committee, and requires a quorum of at least Chairperson, Secretary and Treasurer.
The current committee (2017-2018) is shown below. The current committee can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
