National Board1

The National Board (NB) is made up of 24 representatives from across all of our eight regions – the National Chair (who is elected by members), 22 individuals (elected by the National Council), and the National General Secretary (who is selected by the National Board from among their number).

The role of the National Board is to lead and run the Federation, and to make policy decisions. It is the strategic driver of the organisation, formulating strategy and putting it to the National Council.

The new NB officially exist from 1 September 2018. The NB replaces the Interim National Board (INB) which was established after all recommendations of the Independent Review were accepted at Annual Conference in 2014.
