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 currently 10 Area Boards, also made up of elected FMB members. Please note: At the National AGM in September 2021, members voted for the proposal to amalgamate the Midlands and Eastern regions to create a new Central region and this came into effect in November 2021.

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.
