QLS Corporate Secretary Louise Pennisi said it was never too early to start election preparations.

“You can start preparing now to get involved,” Louise said. “You should be checking to see if your contact details are up to date on myQLS and that you are a full member.

“Ensuring your email, address and phone contact details are correct is crucial so you don’t miss out on any key election communications.”

If you have just been admitted or are unsure of your membership status, please check before the roll closes on 11 September.

The Society encourages practitioners from all around the state, all practice areas and all levels of post admission experience to nominate and vote in this year’s council election.
