The Board

The Board of British Fencing (BF) is responsible for the overall governance, development and management of the sport of fencing in GB.  The Board sets the strategic direction of the sport, appoints the CEO and monitors progress and results. 

The Board consists of eleven Board Directors, of whom eight are elected and three appointed by the Board (these three being the Chair of the Board and of British Fencing, and two Independent Directors).  The Board’s quorum rules specify that the elected members must always be in the majority.  In addition to these voting directors, Board meetings are attended by the BF President and Home Country and athlete representatives.  Staff members attend some meetings, or parts of meetings, to brief/advise the Board. 

Although some Board members may be content to give out contact details, normally they should be contacted through Head Office or 0208 742 3032 in the first instance.
