The QNU Council is responsible for the overall management of the affairs of the Union and oversees the implementation of Annual Conference decisions. The QNU Council does all the things necessary to achieve all of any of the objectives of the Unionís Strategic Plan.
QNU Council consists of 24 nurses and midwives who are elected honorary officials, as well as the Secretary and the Assistant Secretary of the Union.
The Australian Nursing Federation Council, which runs parallel to the QNU Council, consists of the same number of elected and honorary officials.
There is also an eight member Executive made up of members from the Council as well as the Secretary and Assistant Secretary.
The Secretary is responsible for the day-to-day management and administration of the union and its staff, and for implementing Council decisions. The Assistant Secretary is responsible for assisting the Secretary and assumes the full duties of the Secretary in longer absences.
The Secretary and Assistant Secretary are the only full-time officials of Council, and are elected by secret ballot of all members every four years. All other members of Council are elected by secret ballot of all members every two years.
The entire Council meets at least six times a year, while the union Executive meets between Council meetings.
