As a not-for-profit, user led association, British APCO is required to have a Board of Directors who are responsible for the organisation. All our Directors are volunteers who have demanding day jobs within the Public Safety world.  We are grateful to them and to their employers for allowing them the time to perform these roles.

The Board is headed by the British APCO President who is assisted by two Vice-Presidents.  Being President of British APCO is an honour as well as a responsibility.  Board members usually remain in their role for a minimum of two years.  After two years, at our Biennial General Meeting, the President will retire, the First Vice President will assume the role and a new Second Vice President is named.  This means Board members have a six-year commitment to British APCO.

The Directors are supported by an Executive Committee which consists of six User representatives and six from the commercial world.

Upon retirement from their role, the President joins an illustrious list of Past Presidents and is awarded Membership for Life of British APCO.

Please visit the Past Presidents page to see the people who have performed the role and been awarded this honour and the Life Members page to see those considered as having made an outstanding contribution to British APCO.
