The Structure of the RAOC Association

The governance of the RAOC Association is the responsibility of the RAOC Council and the RAOC Executive Committee.

The RAOC Association is based on a branch structure, which includes 16 regional branches and 11 national branches which encompass trades, sporting interests, specialists and widows. Our Branches have a chairman and secretary and hold their own meetings and events. The RAOC Association’s branches come together twice a year at the RAOC Reunion and on Rembrance Sunday, where branch representatives participate as part of the RAOC contingent on the Cenotaph parade.
