NZILE is governed by the NZILE National Council, which is comprised of Registered Legal Executives from around New Zealand.
The council includes independent councillors, elected to the council at the national AGM, and the six branch presidents.
Branch presidents are elected onto the committee of the branch they represent. In that role, they are delegates for their branches on the council.
A list of current councillors can be found HERE.
Council meetings are held throughout the year and are a mix of teleconferences and face to face meetings. Generally, three to four meetings each year are face to face and are held over a weekend.
The council uses subcommittees to deal with matters outside of council meetings.
