NSW District Councils

Purpose, aims and objectives


There are 24 District Councils of RSL sub-Branches throughout NSW with 15 in country regions and nine in the metropolitan area.

District Councils are formed as a collective of RSL sub-Branches within a geographical area. They form a vital link in the management chain and also represent their constituent sub-Branches to local Councils, State Branch, State and Federal Electoral Offices and other statutory bodies.

All District Council officers are elected from the delegates to District Council who give their time and energies voluntarily to support those sub-Branches within their districts to adhere to the Aims and Objects, Constitution, By-Laws and Regulations of the League.

As a link between sub-Branches and State Branch, District Councils escalate sub-Branch concerns to State Branch and act as a "Clearing House" for sub-Branch motions to Annual State Congress.

An important role of the District Council is to promote The League within their districts and to assist sub-Branches with the vital task of recruiting.

District Council Presidents are invited bi-annually to attend a forum with the State President and other State Branch Officers in order to be kept abreast of any new developments or administrative and legal requirements of The League.
