Bromley Arts Council is managed by an Executive Committee of volunteers, consisting of Chairman, Vice-Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer and eleven members elected annually, together with five representatives nominated by the Borough Council. The President is the Mayor of Bromley. In addition to the Resident Warden and his assistants, Bromley Arts Council employs an Administrator and an Assistant Administrator. The contribution of voluntary helpers is also valued.
