The ahcp is lead by a National President and governed by a National Chair, National Treasurer and National Secretary, and nine Regional Branch Representatives, who make up the national Council of Management.

Day-to-day operations are managed by the Business Manager.

The Annual General Meeting held during the National Conference and Exhibition is each member's chance to be heard, but Branch Council Representatives act as a two-way channel throughout the year.

Each Branch meets locally
with the following aims and objectives

  • To uphold the National aims of ahcp
  • To represent the views of the Branch at national level.
  • To intervene on behalf of the members of the Branch on matters of national importance to the profession.
  • To provide facilities for the interchange and expansion of knowledge within the profession.
  • To provide a professional and social meeting point for the members of the Branch throughout the geographical region of the Branch.
  • To organise regional study days and regional events

Branches try to meet regularly so that local colleagues can discuss ideas and share experiences. Meetings may include social events, local Exhibition and Seminars all related to the members' interests in the Cleaning and Support Services Industry.
