Operation of all member networks


We appreciate that our members are volunteers so we try to make the operation of all of the member networks as simple as possible. In this section we have laid out the roles and responsibilities for the Officers of our committees as well as the details of who can join our networks and the operation of committees.

All of our member networks are governed by our Trustees. Both the Local Sections and Interest Groups - as autonomous groups - have sets of rules approved by our governance Boards to which they must adhere. The rules are not adaptable without the approval of the Member Networks Committee.

If you have any queries about any of our member networks, their rules or operating procedures please feel free to contact the Networks Team at any time.
