BASE National Executive Committee

BASE is governed by a National Executive Committee elected by its members within each of the seven regions. The role of the NEC is to provide support and scrutiny as well as linking the national organisation with grass roots members. The NEC meets several times a year, usually in Manchester, and you can find details of our annual reports, Treasurer's reports and AGM minutes here.
