As a not-for-profit, user led association, BAPCO 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 BAPCO President who is assisted by two Vice-Presidents.  Being President of BAPCO is an honour as well as a responsibility.  Board members are nominated to the role for three years, meaning one position comes up for reconsideration each year.  Any member of the association may be nominated for the Board as long as they have the support of their own organisation for the role and the committment.

The Directors are supported by an Executive Committee which consists of six User representatives and six from the commercial world.  Other members may be co-opted if the Board considers it would benefit the association.

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