The Royal Australian Historical Society (RAHS) is committed to good governance practices that support the organisation’s core goals. Overall, the Society is governed by the RAHS Council – a body of twelve representatives elected from financial members of the Society. The Council meets ten to twelve times a year and annually elects an executive committee to implement key strategic initiatives and support the Society’s staff in delivering core operational activities.
Below are the main governance information and policies that underpin how the Society makes its decisions and conducts its core activities.
