Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 27, No. 10. 1964.
NZUSA has a one-eleventh part of the say in what the administration of the ISC does in the next two years. It was elected by the conference on to the 11-member supervision committee.
The first meeting was held in Christchurch after the ISC elected the new co-ordinating secretariat and the research and information commission. The "supcomm" is comprised of the national unions of Nigeria, Scotland, USA, India, Germany, Finland, Paraguay, Costa Rica, Northern Rhodesia and Uganda in addition to New Zealand.
The Supervision Committee appoints and controls the members of the Secretariat and is responsible for the implementation of the ISC's policy between Conferences. Under the new Charter the powers of the Supervision Committee are substantially increased, enabling it to initiate action within the principles of the ISC in the inter-Conference period and thus to act without direct mandate from the Conference. The new committee consequently has the task not only of hammering out a new role for itself, but also of overseeing a radical transformation in the structure of the whole International Student Conference.
