By statute membership has to be a recognised body not an individual. It can sometimes be difficult to judge whether a community organisation is truly representative of the community they claim to represent. Organisations should be clear about who they represent, as well as their aims and objectives. Ideally organisations represented on the committee should have a written constitution and documented membership to help secure the legitimacy of representatives.

Representatives of the RACC include:

  1. Medway Council.
  2. Tonbridge & Malling Council.
  3. Kent County Council.
  4. BAe Systems.
  5. Medway Aircraft Preservation Society (MAPS).

  11. Microlight Flying School
