MEMBERS OF THE BOARD - ROLE AND RESPONSIBILITIES

The BCO’s Board of Management embraces a broad range of disciplines, reflecting the membership as a whole. Most members of the Board are elected although some, such as the regional chapter representatives, are ex officio. Elected members serve a three-year term (after which they can re-stand), and the Board is chaired by the incumbent President. The BCO is a not-for-profit organisation, and its legal structure is that of a company limited by guarantee. The members of the Board constitute the Directors of the company.

As Directors of the company, the members of the Board have responsibility for overseeing the BCO’s financial affairs and the appointment of the officers. Most members of the Board are also closely involved with the BCO’s work in one or more specific areas – these might include the Awards Competition, involvement with an expert committee or the Annual Conference. More than this, all members of the Board act as “ambassadors for the BCO”, promoting and encouraging the continued growth and influence of the UK’s representative body for the office sector.

The BCO's board is currently led by the following officers. Members are invited to put themselves forward for positions on the Board. Ballot papers are circulated to all members for their votes. Appointed members will be notified at the Annual General Meeting held in July each year.
