Executive Committee


The BISA Executive Committee meets four times a year. It is made up of Trustees elected by the BISA membership alongside a number of individuals who have been co-opted in order to take on specialist roles. As BISA is a registered charity, its Trustees are legally responsible for the management and administration of the organisation. 
The work of the Executive is supported by a full-time Director and Administrator.
