Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees is elected from the BABCP membership, by members.

Trustees serve for three years except the President, who serves a total of four years including a year as Future President and a year as Past President.

Each Board member also sits on a standing committee. The Board Terms of Reference [PDF] outlines its aims and governance.
