When you join Foresters you become a member of your local Branch. As a Branch member, you are eligible to vote and hold office on the Branch Council. Local Branch membership includes all Foresters members in your area.
Branches are led by a Branch Council comprised of elected member leaders, Branch Councillors. Elections are held annually and Branch Members select ten Branch Councillors to represent them locally and regionally. Voting takes place through an online voting system or by post in ballot.
Elected Branch Councillors work as a team to represent members' interests in their community. They help oversee the resources and funding to support local Community Team activities, provide input on programmes and activities, meet new people and develop skills you can use in your own life and career.
Branch Councillors meet monthly via teleconference and twice yearly in person.
There are eight Councils in the UK and the map below will give you a guide to which Branch Council covers your postcode area. Each Branch Council has a page with details of meetings and who are your Branch Councillors.
