If you have an allotment in Birmingham then you are a member of Birmingham & District Allotment Confederation. You may attend all meetings of the confederation and may observe the Executive meetings. You may contact the Secretary for advice on any matter relating to your plot. The group is independent of the Council but tries to work closely with it on many topics but is totally committed to working in the best interests of all plotholders.
There are two members meetings per year. The Annual General Meeting usually takes place in May and the Half Yearly Meeting in November.
The Executive meets monthly usually on the first Monday of the month. The Executive comprises of three offices; Chairman, Treasurer and Secretary. In addition there are up to twelve committee members. These people are elected at the AGM. When a vacancy arises during the year the committee has the power to coopt members who have been attending meetings as an observer.
The city is divided into 7 areas supported by named executive members and a number of independent advisors. These are experienced plotholders with many years of experiences.
