There are about seven hundred members of the New Forest CDA throughout the UK. There are a variety of membership options including membership for those turning out, associate membership and junior membership.
An elected committee of twenty four, plus several co-opted members, manage the affairs of the Association. The committee works with many other Forest organisations, particularly the Verderers.
New committee members are elected at the AGM in the Spring. Its officers include a President, Honorary Secretary, Honorary Treasurer, Honorary Solicitor and Honorary Veterinary Surgeon, who are also elected at the AGM.
There are also currently two members of the current committee who sit on the Young Commoners committee, and who liaise between the two groups.
