The PEC has overall responsibility for the control and direction of the policy and affairs of the BDA, and its members are the directors of the Association.

There are 15 members on the PEC. Each will have a share of overall responsibilities, and typically this will require:

  • Attendance at own country council meetings - usually three a year

  • Attendance at UK Council meetings - around two a year

  • Sit on 1-2 sub committees/issue specific forums

  • Attend general meetings of the Association.

It is anticipated that the approximate time commitment for a member of the PEC will be 20 days per year, with an annual remuneration of £15,000.

Term of office

This shall be until December 2026.
