Below is one method of manually adjusting a bandsaw fence, so that it is parallel to the blade. This should allow for truer cutting. Most fences have screws or some other method of adjustment.
See first fig.


One thing I have gathered is that if you are going to resaw timbers (cut into thinner pieces) use a coarse blade, not a fine one. This allows less time for the blade to wobble, and you get a flatter cut.
See second fig.
