An elected Executive which is headed by the President (Professor Warwick Duncan) oversees the Society’s activities.
The Executive includes a member who is part of the NZ Police National Disaster Victim Identification Team. That individual is available for immediate deployment nationally or internationally as part of the NZ government's first response team.
Around the country Regional Coordinators provide Police and Coroners with local points of contact, thereby facilitating timely access to appropriately qualified and experienced practitioners - often the same day a need arises.
