SOC is a committee independent from the decision making. Thus, unlike GC, they do not submit motions or take part in the debate.

The role of SOC is to:

  • Run the elections
  • Oversee Conference procedures
  • Recommend, Advise

SOC Members

SOC members are elected by a ballot in the same way as General Council members.


The rules (Standing Orders) by which Conference is run have been chosen by previous conferences. These rules may be changed by a Conference Resolution.

SOC does not make the rules, however, as the Standing Orders cannot cover for every eventuality, SOC is often called upon to make an impartial recommendation on a conference procedure or interpretation of the Constitution
