Elections

The BDA is a democratic organisation, every decision we make is ultimately determined by our members.

To formulate our decisions, and to help us understand the needs of practitioners we use 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 on these pages.


Our Principal Executive Committee (our board) is slightly different. Elections to it take place in the autumn of every year.


A third of all seats (five) are up for election each year. One of these seats is always a UK-wide seat so all eligible members have the opportunity to nominate themselves on an annual basis. The other four seats are restricted to those members that live in the particular region.

For any queries, please contact the BDA elections team.
