APComm is run by an elected Executive Committee, made up of volunteers who are members currently working within police communications.

The Executive Committee can consist of one Chair or two Co-Chairs, Vice Chairs (up to eight), Secretary, Membership Secretary and Treasurer, and any additional officers deemed necessary to carry out required activities.

Elections for these roles take place at our Annual General Meeting (AGM), held in the last quarter of each calendar year.

Chair or Co-Chairs and Vice Chairs are elected by members for a period of two years and may seek re-election. Elections take place in alternative years, with the post of Chair / Co-Chairs elected on alternative years to the posts of Vice Chairs.

Secretary and Treasurer and Membership Secretary posts are appointed by the Executive Committee, reviewed annually.

The purpose of the Executive Committee is to be accountable for the delivery of APComm’s objectives, and to oversee its assets and finances.

In delivering this purpose, the Committee consults regularly with members and provides updates at national quarterly meetings and other channels as appropriate. It can also appoint staff as considered necessary as well as sub-committees, advisory groups or working parties made up of APComm members and others.

For more information, including if you are interested in standing for election on our Executive Committee, please read our constitution add link or contact an existing Exec member.

The latest constitution was adopted at the APComm Annual General Meeting held on 17 November 2020, in the presence of members representing 38 police communications teams.
