Your Local Services team

The Local Services team is part of the wider Events team at the BDA. The members of the team tend to work with dedicated local areas so that as local officers you get to know who you are working with.
 
We will help with many aspects of the event management for all local events.

Committee roles

The below documents outline what the roles of the Chair, Secretary and Treasurer entail as well as give an overview of what other roles there can be on the overall committee.

Please note that the tasks assigned to each role can be shared amongst other roles i.e. the Chair can invite speakers as opposed to the Sercetary, someone else on the overall committee could liaise with the sponsors etc.
