MLSA Executive Committee

The Executive Committee of the MLSA is responsible for the administration of the affairs of the MLSA and the development of the union.

At the first meeting of each new Executive Committee after the AGM, the ten members elect the officers of the committee in a secret ballot. There are four officer roles: Chairperson, Deputy Chairperson, Treasurer and Honorary Secretary.
