Our People

MCB's leadership is democratic and accountable to affiliates
The MCB’s leadership team consists of Office Bearers who are accountable to Affiliates.

Office Bearers report at least quarterly to the National Council and also appoint staff for day-to-day running. All Office Bearers perform their duties in a voluntary capacity. See below for current MCB Office Bearers 2021-22 or read more about our governance structure here.

Recent National Council session

Office Bearers 2021-22

Every two years, the posts of Secretary General (SG) and Deputy Secretary General (DSG) are directly elected by delegates of MCB Affiliates at an election Annual General Meeting (AGM). National Council members are also elected.

Within one month of the election AGM, the appointment of up to five further Office Bearers are proposed and ratified by the National Council. These include three Assistant Secretary Generals, a Treasurer and an Assistant Treasurer.
