About the ARM

The ARM (annual representatives meeting) considers any proposed changes to byelaws and proposes amendments to the articles of association for the approval of the AGM (annual general meeting). It is established under the articles of association and is constituted in accordance with the byelaws.

The RB (representative body) is made up of constituent bodies that sends elected representatives to the ARM each year to debate on and pass new BMA policies. It also conducts various elections, considers reports from council, the board, and committees.
