The BDA is a democratic organisation, every decision it makes is ultimately determined by our members.

To formulate our decisions, and to help us understand the needs of practitioners we utilise a number of committees and councils.

Membership of these is by open election every three years. As the committees evolve, vacancies sometimes evolve and details of any current vacancies can be found to the left.

Our Principal Executive Committee (our board) is slightly different in that it receives new members every year.
