Board nominations, Museums Association (UK) (Governance)

Posted: Thursday, 13 December 2018

Nominations for elections to the Museums Association (MA) board, UK, are now open with three vacancies on their 14-person board in the next election.

The MA are looking for talented, motivated and creative people to drive the strategic direction of the MA. Becoming a board member is a great opportunity to shape the future of the sector by helping the MA to develop new policy and initiatives, and to lobby government and other stakeholders on behalf of museums.

Duties include monitoring performance against the MA's Business Plan 2017-20; approving annual budgets and monitoring progress against them; contributing to and approving the annual report and accounts; and appointing the director and monitoring his/her performance.

If you feel qualified to do this, or have particular expertise you can offer, then please consider putting yourself forward.

Each board member will serve a three-year term. Candidates must be individual members of the MA, and need two other members to support their nomination to be able to stand.

The closing date for nominations is the 31 January 2019 at 23:59. Voting will commence early February and the election results announced at the beginning of March.
