The NEDS Secretary/Treasurer: responsible for the organisation of council meetings and for the NEDS finances.

The Society

The Society has traditionally operated on a basis of members volunteering to serve on council and of departments volunteering to host meetings. There is no fixed term for Council members except for the role of President. The Council meets on the day of each NEDS meeting and occasionally remotely if required.
