Area Commissioners

THE BDS IN YOUR AREA

Area Commissioners (AC) are appointed by the Council to encourage and assist their local members primarily by organising activities. They appoint their own Assistant Area Commissioners (AAC), Support Officers (SO) and Access & Rights of Way Area Representatives to help them in their areas. Busiest and most successful BDS areas usually have a number of volunteers who host events and help/support their Area Commissioner.

Areas are defined for administrative reasons and all members are welcome at events in any area provided they telephone the host well beforehand. Members without turnouts are always welcome on all occasions.
