Membership of the BGA is open to any governing body of a publicly funded school, Academy, IEB and those institutions providing post 16 provisions within the Barnsley L.A. and which pays the subscription as determined by the annual general meeting. 

Any individual governor whose governing body is not in membership may become an associate member on payment of the subscription determined by the annual general meeting.

Each governing body has one vote in elections and at general meetings, which shall be cast by a duly nominated governor, or their substitute.  Associate members will have no vote.

Membership runs from April each year and the current base fee for a governing body is £50 per annum.
