Pursuant to the Rules, if more candidates are nominated than there are vacancies to be filled at the Annual General Meeting (AGM), then an election shall be held at the AGM.

In terms of the Rules, the candidate receiving the highest number of votes, whether in person or by proxy, attorney or representative voting shall be declared elected. Where two or more candidates receive an equal number of votes, the person to be elected shall be chosen by lot and that shall be conducted by the Australian Secretary.
