The FMB is run by members for members. At a national level, the FMB is governed by an elected, all-member Board of Directors, with day-to-day management delegated to a Senior Management Team. At the local level, there are 11 Area Boards, also made up of elected FMB members. 

Board of Directors

The FMB’s Board of Directors (the Board) provides the overall direction and leadership of the FMB's strategic plan and ensures its effectiveness as a membership organisation. It is made up of 14 member representatives, elected by the Area Boards in the eight English regions and three home nations. The Chair is the National President, who holds the post for two years. Read more about the members of the FMB’s Board of Directors

Area Boards

Each Area Board is made up of 14 Master Builders, elected by members in the corresponding nation or region. Area Boards meet regularly to discuss their experiences and observations of the building sector at a local level, and to make recommendations on how the FMB can best support members.
