Chairman of the BCA is first and foremost the guardian of the
Association's constitution. It is especially important
to be able to interpret the Constitution in Annual General Meetings.
To chair this meeting is the next priority task of the Chairman.
The Chairman's most intensive job is to chair meetings of the
BCA Committee. Held twice a year, these always last for at least
five hours. The Chairman must Control the meeting without
dominating the discussion.
With the support of his fellow trustees the Chairman may be
expected to give a lead in all matters of strategy, and should
also be prominent in a public relations role for example to
host guests of the Association.
Last but not least, the Chairman is responsible for devising
and signing off the Annual Report and the Business Plan.
