FACP membership is not based on nationality. Members are grouped according to the capital cities of the countries/regions which the members are residing or working in.
FACP is run by an Executive Committee which sets down the policy and strategic direction. The committee is made up of one chairman, up to five vice-chairmen, a secretary, a treasurer and two executive committee members, who are elected every three years by The Board of Governors.
The Board of Governors of the FACP is made up of elected Ordinary Members which form the core to represent the rest of the members from the same country/region.
