Every member is allocated to a branch on joining. Our branches are groupings of members that form the democratic structure by which members are able to have a say in how the organisation is run.
There are two kinds of branch – local branches and Civil Service national branches.
Each branch is run by a group of volunteer members who give their time generously to support the organisation. These volunteers form a committee which consists of a Chairman, Treasurer and Secretary plus other committee members. Any member may put their name forward for election to a position on the branch committee.
Each branch committee organises several general meetings every year that all members of the branch are encouraged to attend. These meetings provide a great opportunity to make your views known to your fellow members. They also form the mechanism by which member proposals can be put to our Conference and by which branches form views on all Conference business in order to instruct their delegates on how to vote at Conference.
