Typically, each branch has its own committee and runs monthly or bi-monthly branch meetings that include BDAQ and industry updates as well as local supplier presentations. Branch meetings also provide members opportunities to network with other building designers in the area.

BDAQ also has a State Management Committee that is involved with the running of the Association as well as organising Queensland events such as the Building Design Awards, Conferences, Technical Masterclasses and more.
