The Lit & Deb is administered by a committee, elected by members at its most recent AGM.
The chief officer of the society is the auditor, who chairs the society’s meetings and has general responsibility for its affairs. The society’s constitution establishes several other offices. The Vice-Auditor and Treasurer make up the remainder of the executive and two secretaries (Recording Secretary & Debates Secretary) along with four conveners (Internal, External, Schools’ & Literary), the Public Relations Officer and the Clerk of the House constitute the remainder of the elected committee. The Auditor may then appoint members to the committee at their discretion.
The Auditor of the 171st session will appoint up to two Deputy Schools Conveners and two Ordinary Committee Members.

Ultimately, the Auditor takes overall responsibility for the success of a Session. It is the Auditor’s role to chair meetings, manage the Committee, oversee all of the Society’s work and act as the Society’s public face.
