Board elections: Frequently asked questions

What is the board?

The board, officially known as the Principal Executive Committee (PEC), has overall control and direction of the policy and affairs of the BDA. It is the Association’s board of directors, and as such it holds all requisite statutory, commercial and common law duties and responsibilities. It is also the body responsible for the lawful conduct of the Association as a recognised trade union.


The board seeks to balance the competing interests of what is right for the Association with what is right for individual members, and what is right for the profession.

The board comprises of 15 elected seats, nine for England, one each for Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, and three UK-wide seats.


What sort of issues does the board work on?

The board’s role is to guide the direction and strategy of the BDA in terms of governance. Although you will be elected to the board you will also be a director of the Association and hence required to adhere to the seven principles for directors established in the Companies Act.
