Committees

We have committees covering a range of issues and industry sectors. Each committee is comprised of representatives from BPF members, and usually meets four times a year. We also run a number of working groups covering specific issues.  

Scroll down for the list of committees and groups, the BPF team member who looks after each one and a brief overview of the issues they are covering. Many of our committees are very popular and may have a waiting list to join.  However, most committees also welcome associate members who can sign up through MyBPF to receive papers, minutes and invitations to get involved in some of the committee’s work without attending the meetings.  

 We have a goal to achieve a minimum 30% female representation on all committees, in line with our D&I policy. If you are interested in joining a committee, please email the relevant member of the BPF team.
