What is the BDA's Principal Executive Committee?

The Principal Executive Committee (PEC) is the BDA's board of directors. It determines the organisation's strategy, priorities and finances.

The board not only sets the strategic direction of the BDA but also ensures all our members' money is reinvested into providing advice and support for all members.

Elections to the BDA's board take place in the autumn of every year with a third of all seats (five) available for nominations.

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, see our map of the seats across the UK.
