Congratulations to the successful candidates and sincere thanks to all candidates who nominated.

The pro bono contribution of Fellows has been, and continues to be the College's most valuable asset and resource. We are grateful for their commitment. We are also grateful to the voting Fellows (23.9%) who demonstrated their engagement with the governance of the College.

The results will be tabled at the Annual General Meeting in Sydney on Thursday 10 May 2018, when newly elected Councillors take office.

The poll results are verified by Mr Ralph McKay of BigPulse.
