BDA Committees & General Management

The BDA Management Committee meets quarterly, however it is the various Sub-committees who are tasked with bringing the ongoing projects to fruition.

On a daily basis the BDA General Manager and admin support team are charged with undertaking all  administration, including meetings management and responding to member queries.

The many dedicated members of the BDA management and sub-committees feel they have a duty to give other people the benefit of their experiences in the pursuit of progress, and they do this on a voluntary basis.

The team is not complete without the many members of the BDA, who contribute or are available for consultation:
