Queensland Law Society Corporate Secretary Louise Pennisi would like to remind members that voting in the QLS Council election closes on Monday, 9 October 2023 at 4pm.
She said only full members on the Roll of Electors as of 11 September 2023 were eligible to vote, but that every vote counted in shaping the new council.
“The 2023 election is your chance to play a part in shaping the QLS Council and overseeing the direction of Queensland’s legal profession,” Louise said.
“QLS Councillors champion the profession through their experience and understanding of the issues and opportunities members face in daily practice. Placing trusted advisors at the helm of Queensland Law Society strengthens the future of our profession.
“Be sure to take part in voting and let your voice be heard.
“I want to thank the membership for participating in the election so far, and also congratulate and recognise all candidates for their time and effort campaigning.”
Results will be announced publicly from Tuesday, 10 October, and the newly elected QLS Council will take office on 1 January 2024.
