About the role

As a Trustee and Officer of the Association and Chair of the Executive Committee, the President serves as its Chief Volunteer and is responsible for providing leadership and strategic direction for the Association, working with other Officers and EC members and the Chief Executive to plan the future activities of BAPM. 

The President provides an important link with outside organisations, seeking to raise the profile of the Association among politicians and government bodies, Royal Colleges and health organisations, health professionals and parents’ organisations.
