The Society's administrative bodies are as follows:
- General Assembly
- Executive Committee
- Audit Committee
The General Assembly, which includes all paid-up members of the Society, is the highest level administrative body. It decides on all major matters relating to the Society, as and when required, and it does not answer to any other body. Decisions of the General Assembly are binding on both the members and the administration of the Society. The General Assembly monitors the Board of the Society and its other administrative and functional bodies. The responsibilities of the General Assembly are described in detail in the Society's statutes. The General Assembly convenes annually, in January, at a meeting organised by the Board.
The Board of the Society has nine members and is elected by the General Assembly for a three-year term. Its composition is as follows:
- Past President
- Vice President
- Counsellors (4)
If there is no Past President, or if the Past President wishes to be re-elected or does not wish to participate in the Board, five Counsellors will be elected.
The Executive Committee has three members: the President and two members of the Board.
The Audit Committee monitors the Board with respect to financial management. It has four members and is elected by the General Assembly.
