Your BDA Council

BDA Council members are BDA members (just like you!) who choose to put themselves forward to be responsible for the strategic leadership of the BDA.

They agree major policy, manage the Association’s finances and represent the total membership. Council members are elected into their different roles by you - the wider membership and, with the exception of two roles reserved for a dietetic support worker member and a dietetic student member, all Council roles are open to full BDA members. 

Being on BDA Council is a really inspiring and interesting place to be! I am passionate about promoting the profession and being part of the decision making for the profession. Being on Council has given me many opportunities to do this. I would encourage anyone who is interested in furthering our profession to get involved.

Caroline Bovey, Chair of the Wales Board (and Chair Elect)
